Friendly, helpful staff and a beautiful room. Lovely old building and the landlord was very friendly too. Only issue was that it was impossible to get a cab to our venue nearby.

Lovely pub. We stayed just the one night. Positives were the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff, beautiful location very nice full English breakfast. On the minus side was the room and bed. The pub is old and full of character but the room was very dowdy and the bed extremely uncomfortable so much so we found it difficult to sleep at all.
