This is a difficult review to write because the staff, in the main, are lovely. Our room was also very comfortable for our several nights stay. The restaurant was at the higher end of good. Overall this B&B pub has a star rating of 4 ...we felt that this is really too high. A rating of 3 is more realistic. So what let's it down ..the breakfasts certainly. The non-English speaking chef covered this on his own and really couldn't cope. Much of the food was over-cooked and the menu for 4 stars is limited. Also, a minor annoyance, wifi is only available downstairs which really should have been made clear in the details. On a positive note, the hotel is next to the steam train line and otherwise surrounded by farmland so very quiet.
