The other half and I stayed for one night last weekend, after deciding on a spontaneous weekend away.
We arrived about 6pm on a Sunday night, to a friendly welcome, and were shown to room 8. On the whole it was a comfy and clean room although some elements of it looked a little tired and neglected - a couple of stains on the carpet, flaked paint on the feature wall and cobwebs on the ceiling. It was, however, clean and the bed was extremely comfy. My main criticism of the room would be the lack of ventilation. The window barely opened - 1cm would be very generous so it was warm and a little stuffy.
We decided to eat our evening meal at the pub and sat in a delightful beer garden - listening to 15 minutes of the landlord hammering and banging to close a jammed door. The pub was, for a bank holiday, quite empty and food was only served until 8pm. It was, however, well cooked, reasonably priced and enjoyed. Service was great and as by now the banging had stopped we did manage to enjoy a pleasant meal together.
Dessert was definitely the highlight of the evening - and the other half would definitely recommend the chocolate pecan pie.
After a warm night's sleep, we found the shower to be poor. The water wasn't very hot and it seriously lacked any power. I have a personal dislike of shower curtains so the bright and bold one hanging off the rail wasn't very well received.
Going down for breakfast the noisy landlord greeted us in a friendly manner that changed rapidly to a grumpy one when we asked if we could eat breakfast outside. Grumbling something about having to move crockery and cutlery the service seemed to go downhill and although the breakfast itself was fabulous we were made to feel like an inconvenience.
Although it seems like our stay here was poor, it is somewhere we would stay again. It was reasonably priced (£45 BB for the 2 of us) and very convenientally located. The food on the whole was excellent and the room about what we expected for the money. The noisy and grumpy landlord didn't quite manage to put us off!
