Booked eight rooms (singles mostly) for us all to go to the RTTW at the National Memorial Arboretum (NMA) 4th and 5th October (20130). We were booked for two nights and although booking in was a wee bit slow it was not their fault, they are a pub and not a hotel therefore the girl booking us in was also serving pints to the customers; so no problem there. They have I think 21 rooms in this (presumably) former coaching house and there a wee rooms all over the place, kind of motel type mixed with hotel type but good. Rooms themselves (for us) were pretty small and basic, but it is a pub and the price is great. Rooms clean, and clened on both days towels changed etc and friendly staff. We had dinner on the Friday and I have to say it was the best gammon steak I have ever eaten. Between us all there were no complaints about the food and we had varying choices from a good selection. The full English breakfast on both mornings was great, hot, fresh and plenty of cereals, juices etc etc all served with a smile! Parking was also not a problem as they have a large car park to the rear and if you manage to get a room there you can park your bike (or car) at the door. There is also a beer garden at the front and the rear of the pub.Remember it is a pub not a hotel and what you get for your money is well worth it.
It is a tradition we have (Caledonia Harley Club) that we like to share a few Tequila's with our friends however on this occassion they didn't have any, the manageress wasn't keen to go get any so we had a few pints and went further into town. Their loss as we probably spent another £400 that they could have had in their till, so for that reason they have lost a point or it would have been practically perfect, however we will book again for next year; and if they read their reviews then maybe there will be some Tequila!
