Liked the warm welcome. The room was small but perfectly adequate. Only slight problem was that it was directly on the road and only had curtains, so had to change with the curtains drawn and the light on. Bathroom was clean and the towels were proper bath towels. Beds were comfortable. Great dining room with beautiful views across the fields. Breakfast was awesome and service excellent.

The pub is lovely and in a rural setting that requires driving down narrow country lanes with passing places to reach it. We were taken to our room and shown how to operate the door onto the balcony. We were also given instructions about not leaving the bathroom door open during or straight after a shower as the steam would set off the smoke alarm. I don’t think it should be incumbent on the guest to remember this. Maybe a less sensitive smoke alarm should have been installed or placed elsewhere in the bedroom. The room and bathroom were lovely, newly decorated, luxurious and with a beautiful chandelier in the bathroom. There was a bath and a walk-in shower but no door on the shower so water escaped onto the bathroom floor. The water did not drain away either and we had to remove the shower drain stopper to get rid of the water as we showered. The bedroom had loads of storage space, a very comfortable queen-size bed and super deep-pile carpet. The only thing missing was that there was not one single mirror in the bedroom! This made it very difficult for drying hair and putting makeup on. A very poor oversight. The balcony was equipped with two rattan chairs and cushions and we enjoyed a nightcap there. We ate dinner and breakfast at the pub. The food was tasty and fresh but service was slow and we had to wait a long time for food on both occasions. At breakfast, we waited 30 mins before our order was taken. A pleasant stay nonetheless.

Superb friendly welcome from the second I arrived, well organised and the room was lovely, very quaint and made a change to the carbon copy corporate hotels I normally stay in, food & beer was great and staff were amazing and couldn't do enough for you. Only negative I had was that the WiFi did not work in my room, but the positive meant I couldn't work late. Highly recommended and I will definitely be staying again soon.
