Enjoyed my stay here at this very popular hotel, sometimes difficult to get rooms. The rooms are a little quirky but clean fresh and very comfortable. High quality food in the evening and a great selection of beers. Breakfast a delight. Enjoy.

We had had an emotional funeral and needed a place for drinks and chats. The staff were lovely, the food was delicious and there was a good choice of drinks. I would definitely recommend this stunning pub.
