This is a very nice pub that has had an expensive make over. The staff are friendly and work hard to try to ensure good service. When I booked the only room with outside space that was available was the suite which is spacious and has a modern bathroom with bath. However, the outside space was a large terrace that over looked the children’s playground and outside tables. Not a problem. The problem was the smell of cooking as the kitchens were just underneath our room. There were bins there as well but a member of staff moved them when I complained. As you will see from the photo the view was somewhat obstructed by the banks of solar panels on the roof to our left. None of this should deter anyone from staying at this pub just don’t pay the extra for the suite/ room 5! We ate here on our second night and the food was fine with good service.

2/5 Poor

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort

Nice enough place, just be warned if you eat here.
Room was nice but not clean, didn’t check draws before putting clothes in, they were covered in dust when we took them out. The whole room could of done with some TLC. The staff were friendly enough. It must be difficult getting back up and running post lockdown and maybe they still have cleaners furloughed. But this was no excuse for the restaurant, after ordering the 1st alarm bell sounded, most of the unattended plates were unfinished, in hope more than expectation we thought the portion size might be the reason. The 2nd bell sounded as the young lady cleared 2 tables and returned to wipe them over with the same cloth and no disinfectant of any sort, which was concerning in these COVID days. This was enough for my partner to want leave, unfortunately I persuaded her to stay. Then the meal arrived, which will live long in the memory. The burger was worse than any football burger I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen some pretty bad ones knocked up over the years. The chips I can only presume were from plates of other patrons that also couldn’t eat them, but they must of been warmer when they had them. The garlic bread, may of been in the same kitchen as some garlic but doubt they came into contact and it also avoided the grill as it was literally bread and I felt pity for the sad looking onion rings. We took1 bite and left. It tasted as bad as it looked. The only other place we could get something at the time was Cowabunga pizza, which was really good as pizza go. Give it a go🍕
