Quiet spot
Great spot for walkers to access the surrounding countryside, within 15 min drive to larger towns. Staff very friendly and helpful, great full English hot breakfast only served. Room was adequate with all amenities, shower pressure ok and a little small. Restaurant on site and the food is really lovely. Overall for a small pub we really enjoyed our stay and value for money however the double bed was very soft and springy and would recommend an up grade of the mattress to help sleep better.

We had a lovely couple of nights at the Outgate Inn. While fairly basic rooms (very reasonably priced), it's comfortable, the staff were very helpful and the food was really fantastic
