We stayed here on a family recommendation. It's a lovely pub with beautiful rooms and very friendly staff. There is a good wine list and a choice or local cider and ale. We found it difficult to choose from the short menu as they all looked good - but the mac cheese and fish stood out and the chocolate dessert was fantastic.
It isn't perfect however. Many rooms aren't en suite and ours (which was) didn't have a proper shower. Instead we had a stand alone bath (which was lovely) with a handheld shower which seemed designed to soak the room rather than the person showering. The tea making facilities were generous but were in the corridor not the room. I think these choices were made for style but probably aren't what most guests want. And that has detracted from my marking for rooms - if there was a proper shower and an in room kettle this would have been a 5 overall and a 5 for rooms.
