Friendly, welcoming, full of loved and well treated animals. Staff helpful, and gave just the right balance of attention, and leaving us to enjoy our food. The building is old, and probably grade 1 listed, so we liked the ambience. Breakfast was excellent - scrambled eggs the best I've had cooked for me. If you are afraid of dogs, this is not for you, but we loved it, and now rate it as an excellent place to stopover/stay

Wonderful location, beautiful rooms, a tasty breakfast. Slightly mixed on supper but could be the choice made as my lamb was amazing. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Lovely pub, food was amazing, best chips I’ve ever had! The room was clean although smaller than I expected. The ceilings are very low. Tea/coffee restocked daily. Breakfast was great. The pub doesn’t serve food on a Sunday which is a shame but they have a lovely beer garden with lots of different areas to sit in, staff were lovely.

Disliked: Staff & service
Did not stay, no rooms on arrival.
Arrived to be told that the rooms are not open during pandemic April 2021. Rooms still listed to be paid for upfront on hotels.com. Had to find new accomodation that day and it took 2 weeks to get money back. Call this property before booking.
