We stayed at the pub on a Saturday night in early December when the bar and restaurant were busy with festive revellers and this made for a great atmosphere. We were greeted very cordially, despite them being busy, and shown to our room which, although on the small side, was perfectly OK for a night's stay. Please note though, no desk for you road warriors and i would agree with other reviewers that shower/toilet are is small in comparison to most B&B's outside of London. However, the friendliness of the staff more than made up for this and we were very well looked after throughout our stay. There are only three rooms currently available and these have a separate entrance altogether to the pub, so privacy and security are assured.
We did not eat in the restaurant, because we were here for a friend party who lives in the village, but breakfast was marvellous - with the Chef himself serving us. Everything was top notch and delicious. We were also able to choose the breakfast time ourselves as the Chef lives on the premises. In fact I think he is the owner\tenant because he was telling us about plans for 2013 to make the pub even better. I can also say the layout of the restaurant has been cleverly designed with a lounge area around the bar with leather settees and a group of tall tables and bar stools, which leaves the restaurant itself set on it's own with around 40 covers, so it should never be too busy.
The room, restaurant and bar were all very clean and tidy. The choice of Cask Ales was excellent and the local Marston's Pedigree bitter was kept to perfection. My wife also enjoyed having the choice of having Prosecco by the glass and the wine list looked very good.
We paid £70 B&B and would definitely stay again.
