We stayed overnight for our wedding anniversary and went to the medieval banquet.
The building is wonderful but out room was rather dingy; it had not been refurbished, which was reflected in the lower price, and was very clean but the lighting was very poor and the light over the bathroom sink did not work.
The medieval feast was excellent with good food and great entertainment but it was a shame that so few people dressed up.
Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit, cereals, meats and cheeses and an enormous array of delicious pastries, including Welsh cakes.There was certainly no need to pay extra for a full cooked breakfast.
The staff were very welcoming and helpful and we would certainly return especially as the price of the room was £10 less than we paid for a B and B in the town a few months ago! - and the breakfast was much better!
