I had visited many years ago when this was a local pub at the very heart of the community. The restaurant did wonderful food, they did bed and breakfast and you could still just pop into the bar for a drink. I am sure the new owners think they have turned this into a wonderful foodie paradise but to he honest they just seemed to have ruined a tradition that was 100s of years old. When I returned I was told that the locals do not go there any more and it is just people travelling through. A real shame as it was such a nice establishment.
