A lovely old pub with a modern touch. Our room was so quaint, in the stable block. Lovely conversion, v snug and quiet, with all comforts provided. We enjoyed a super meal by an open fire and breakfast was in the attractive restaurant. The menu for each was extensive and delicious. One small problem was the green emergency ceiling light which over illuminated the bedroom.

Really an average pub

The reviews for this pub were good but our experience was not. The rooms are adequate but of pub quality. I did not sleep well because of a very bright green safety light in the bedroom and no curtains (only flimsy blinds) which did not provide any light shade from the security lights constantly coming on outside. The food at this hotel is definitely poor pub quality. Breakfast was not good, avocado and poached eggs on sourdough is not usually served on half a ciabatta roll. Very disappointing stay, we will not be returning.
