Advised the owners only acquired the B&B 3 weeks prior to my stay was evident. No menu for the evening meal, choice from a blackboard with limited basic meals. Placement settings for dining was basic, no condiments, cutlery just thrown on the table. Breakfast order was taken the night before, breakfast options were not provided just full English. Again place settings were basic, again no condiments. No cereal options provided only full english.
