Not as advertised and very poor value for money given our two night stay cost over £250. No cooked breakfast as advertised but a cool box delivered to your room (using Covid as the excuse, but they were happy to seat people in the pub in the evening & serve food.) My breakfast banana was brown! The heating in our room didn’t work but when asked to fix it nobody did. The room had also allegedly been cleaned to Covid safety standards before our arrival but was dirty. When we had a drink in the pub itself they were served in plastic glasses and the barman refused to clear our table. When pubs/restaurants have spent months moaning about the current situation you think they might try harder to encourage people back!

Nice pub usually but felt more like a £60 a night place than £110 to stay. Rooms quite sparse, laminate floor, not really any cosy touches. Not offering cooked breakfast as stated on booking due to Covid, just a couple of small, slightly stale pastries brought to the room with a couple of completely black bananas! I would go back for a drink but doesn’t seem good value to stay.
