This is the nearest I have weber been to Fawley Towers. I Can forgive the fact that they forgot I was coming, though sitting in my sweaty cycling gear for 40 minutes while they sorted out a room wasn't much fun. The barmaid was lovely, and this 13th century Inn would have been lovely too if they didn't have cheesy tunes FM blasting out from a tinny speaker.
Once in, the room was really nice. Plenty of space, clean, nice shower, good size TV, all good.fair price too.
Although there was a sign giving me the wifi password there was no wi-fi to log on to so I was forced to visit the Masons Arms down the road who have excellent wi-fi, and good beer. The Darlington had really good beer too but no wi-fi.
I was planning on eating here but I didn't fancy the music so I tried the fish shop which is really exceptional.
Later that night the owners had a massive row, shouting and screaming at each other for quite some time. I'm sorry if they have personal problems but I don't want to hear them. This concluded with the landlady leaving so in the morning there was nobody to make breakfast. Luckily one of the other residents used to be a chef and he insisted on making a cooked breakfast for me. Bizarre!
This pub with rooms does have nice rooms and potential to be really good but I wouldn't take my wife there.
