“Pretty Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2013

The room was on the small size and with a double bed (rather than a king size) and that's the only reason I'm giving the place 4 stars and not 5. The bed was comfy, the room clean & with lots of nice touches. Breakfast in the morning was really good too - we had the full English, although cerals etc were also on offer.

Went for Sunday Lunch as a birthday surprise for my mum. Excellent service, nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious and very varied. The staff even joined in singing Happy Birthday. Will definitely spread the word and as a family, we will return.

Thank you for making the day special for mum.

The food was excellent at a reasonable price ,the one let down was that we had to wait for an half hour for the puddings as the staff seemed preoccupied with phoning or cleaning the other tables though there were perhaps only 8 other diners.We did ask the waitress for assistance but she failed to understand and then I butted in to the telephone conversation of the man behind the bar to get a response.We were in full view of the bar.

Was staying in a B and B near by and decided to have dinner in the Prince Consort, was lovely! Was worried before entering that it would be a very "locals" place, but not at all! The staff were friendly and eager to tell us other local places to try out. Fantastic and extensive menu - definitely something for everyone! My family and I all tried completely different meals and they were beautifully cooked. Proper ciders and ales available as well.
Was shown the accommodation side as well and would recommend it, and would say it is the perfect place for larger parties of people to stay.

Room Tip: The Smothered Chicken is delicious!!

I spent last night here and thought it was charming. I was at a family function and needed a bed for the night and am glad I chose to stay atbthe Prince Consort rather than a chain. The room had everything I needed and the bed was very comfortable. I couldn't get over how lovely the breakfast was-better than ones I've had in 4*hotels recently. I didn't have the pleasure of having a main meal here but the menu looked lovely.

Attended a family wedding and although the welcome it was not that great later on on in the day the owner. Pepe made it all happen. Great customer personal service to be admited by all and that's how family run business should be running. Friendly, officient and aproachable!. The food it was good but the breakfast it was excellent. The rooms were okay but the convient on staying there and attending the wedding made up for any small shortfalls.

I must also complement the way Pepe and his wife Karen have aproached all family members during the wedding. Nothing too much of a problem and always keen to help and assist.

I would have rated the hotel higher if the welcome it was a little better. Well Done Pepe and Karen, you did very well on both Thursday and Friday.

Tip for future guests! Great poached eggs!

Room Tip: Breakfast and Dinner it was excellent with great parking facilities. Ask for a room on the ground fl...

I stayed at the Prince Consort on business last Thursday. The staff were wonderful, the pub friendly and well decorated. The food was excellent and my room (which was a few yards away from the pub/restaurant so nice and quiet) was newly decorated, comfy bed new TV and even the shower water pressure (a bug-bear of mine) was great!

A lovely stay, many thanks to Pepe, Karen and staff!
