“Very disappointing”
Reviewed 29 November 2006

I recently stayed here with work colleagues and was quite disappointed.The pub is situated in a lovely village.I could not fault the size of the room,it was spacious however the room was freezing when I arrived and when I asked the landlord if he could take a look it was like he was doing me a great big favour !
The bathroom seriously needs upgrading,no toilet roll holder,mouldy shower curtain and no blind up at the bathroom window even though it overlooked the main road!
Even though we were residents we were refused another drink after 2315hrs.Service at breakfast was slow and there was a lack of cutlery,fresh juice and sauces and we had to wander aroung trying to locate these ourselves.
As it was a business trip I put up with it but would have been seriously fed up if I had stayed here at my own expense on a personal holiday.
Another one of the group commented on the attitude of the landlord
