We stayed here at the end of July when we went to see Tears for Fears at Newmarket Races. It is a lovely little B&B, we had a nice room, it was clean and modern. I think it was shame that breakfast was not included in the rate, we did not realise this was an extra charge. It was quite... More

Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. Unfortunately taxis around here are not cheap and I hope this doesn't put you off returning. I'm afraid we do not include breakfast in our prices as not everybody has breakfast so we offer it to those who do wish to add it on. We hope to see you again for another... More

Couldn't fault this pub accommodation in anyway. The twin room was a large size with a big bathroom and high ceilings and very clean and simply decorated. Breakfast was superb. Meals in the pub were great and everyone was very friendly and helpful.

Stay for one night when attending a family gathering. The room was amazing. The equal of some 5 star hotels we have stayed at. Enormous comfortable bed & quality furnishings. Only downside was a very small & useless shower curtain. Also had a meal in the bar which was also of the highest standard. Highly recommended.
