The Rose & Crown Hotel

Not my usual area so a bit of a punt here but what a little gem. Rooms were excellent (very creaky floor, but it is a few years old)!!. Breakfast was good, lots to see and do in the area. Although I didn't eat in the restaurant the menu looked interesting. Only recommendation I can give it is I'd happily book again when in the area.
