Bristol stopover
Lovely pub B&B unfortunately we were at the front of the hotel and I think they should contact the council and get the drain in the road repaired, as from 5 am all you heard were 2 loud bangs every time a vehicle drove over it! The bed was really comfy and the cleanliness of the room was superb. Enjoyed our stay except for the drain. Food not spectacular a few issues with the evening meal and breakfast was not the greatest.

Not bad, will stay again.
It’s a pub. The room was good, but the carpet was too pale. The bed was too soft for me, but that’s picky. Teas & coffees much better than expected and much appreciated. There’s a storage cupboard next to Room 2 that needs to be opened/closed, more often than I would wish.
