We were booked into the Barrington Arms by my cousin and did not choose it. We were staying there for my Aunt's funeral and were not sure what to expect. However: The rooms were spotless and the food for the Wake was lovely. When we drank the bar dry of wine, the barman popped next door to the local corner...

I stayed at the hotel on business and although the rooms are not massive they do fulfill a purpose, the food in the restaurant was very good with fast efficient service both for the evening and breakfast meals very good value for money, However on the down side bring some earplugs due to the fact that it is a pub...

Four of us decided to give the Hotel a go for a meal. Ordered a bottle of wine and 2 beers, the barmaid went to put the bottle back into the chiller before we reminded her that we wanted the whole bottle. We perused the menu and the specials board before deciding to have the first thing on the menu...

This was a very late booking, as the place we had booked previously had let us down, we had pre booked a king size bed and off street parking (in Feb 2016) and when we phoned to confirm as we'd been instructed to we were told the only king size was given to another couple and there was a skip...

Arrived in the evening, had a lovely friendly welcome in the bar and then shown to my room (Lady Charlotte). The room was very nice, clean and attractive, the bathroom was a great size for an en suite and the shower was fantastic. The bed was one of the most comfortable I ever stayed in and the curtains block out...

Stayed with a group for a local wedding and this fitted the bill. Popular with the locals in this lovely village and good value all the way, with simple rooms neatly furnished and tucked away behind the pub. Excellent breakfast, pleasant staff.

Stayed for four nights whilst on business. Clean, friendly, quiet and a great breakfast. Good value for money. Ample off-road car parking. Would definitely use this hotel again. Had two evening meals which were very good. Good high speed internet - a life saver!
