Great location & great room. Lovely pub with lovely evening meals menu, due to circumstances (covid) breakfast wasn't back yet, but that didn't affect us, water, tea & coffee available in the room. Friendly & helpful staff. Inside & out all well kept, clean & maintained. Large car park, terrace & gardens with a play area all kept neat & tidy.

Very very good
Fantastic rooms, very new. Some of the pictures on the bedroom wall were a bit spooky and old fashioned. Very nice place. Staff extremely friendly. Menu a bit limited but food quality was superb. Would definitely stay again.
