Lovely hotel with great history in a very charming small town. The staff were very friendly. On arrival I sat in the lounge in front of a big wood stove with my pint of beer writing my journal - what a great start. The dining room is good and the food very enjoyable. Allow time to explore the area - there is so much to see.

Overnight stay
Lovely refurbished pub hotel, our room was directly over the bar and entrance and was very loud for a small village pub but very well furnished and good supply of tea,coffee. Staff were all very young and a bit inexperienced but tried their best in a very busy restaurant. There were a few hiccups at dinner and breakfast but overall a lovely place to visit

Value for money this is excellent with a terrific restaurant attached. Ideal for all types and rooms are all brand new. Perfect for motorcycle touring, as there is ample parking at the hotel. A hidden gem that requires more recognition for its quality.
