4/5 Good

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Lovely old building and setting. Food was good, standard pub menu. Room was very clean, nice extras like bottled water, bathroom particularly was quite tired decoration wise, and shower over bath sadly did not work properly. It was a very cheap room though and booked last minute, so good value for money.

The bar and restaurant area was cosy and warm and tastefully decorated. The bedroom and bathroom was fine for the star rating. Bed was comfy.

2/5 Poor

Business traveller
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Not particularly impressed.
Felt hassled by owners to arrive, as they wanted to close early, even though it’s a pub. Even though we were caught up in Storm Ciara, we had around 6 calls. Hotel was ok, but, the toilet wasn’t fastened to the floor, resulting in my colleague spraining his ankle.

Lovely old coaching house
Lovely old coaching house built by a village green with a stream & village pond Loads of character & history including the old village firestation museum next door. Don't expect ultra modern decor because its an old building but is kept well. The staff were great. I can't remember tha lady behind the bar but she runs the place well. Note though the bar closes early during the week & 11pm at weekends.
