Reviewed 7 December 2017

My family recently stayed here for a 'family reunion' and we had booked for one night but when we saw our accommodation, we wished we had booked for longer. It is an amazing place and the food was great. It was all so wonderful, we have decided to go again next year - can't give a better recommendation than that

Really comfortable bedrooms, comfortable beds, well designed bathrooms, great 'instant' coffee. And a great breakfast. We left it too late to book a table for dinner, but staff were really helpful recommending somewhere else and we enjoyed the atmosphere in the bar on our return. Would definitely return.

My wife's birthday so my daughter and I asked her where she would like to go for lunch and she chose this pub in a nearby village. We had heard good reports about it and were not disappointed. An excellent lunch menu at a very reasonable price. The service was very attentive and the portion sizes were extremely generous. All in all a very good choice and I would recommend it to anyone.

Booked in for 2 nights last weekend. Lovely room, clean, modern and staff very accommodating making sure we had skimmed milk in room and for breakfast which by the way was hot, great choice, eggs cooked to order and very pleasant staff overseeing the service. However, emergency light over door in room emits a green light which is constant and this really affected my sleep as it lightened up the room, we also appeared to have a boiler pump somewhere going through its cycle all night every 30 seconds. Overall did not get much sleep despite a very comfy bed. This was pointed out to staff and we were told that these are issues currently being addressed. That aside I would definitely recommend this place.
