Old Inn stop over
Staff were so warm, welcoming and friendly. Evening meal was everything i could have wanted and expected, and the draught ale topped it off. Room was clean and had everything i needed other than work/desk space, so i was forced to relax and chill, so i did. Areas for improvement? When customers swear in earshot of others, stamp it out. What you permit, you promote.
