Very friendly and attentive staff. Large, comfortable bed. Good food. Small things need attention: nowhere to hang Bath towels, large holes in wall where such might have been, no milk for in-room tea/coffee.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The building was very clean and staff were wonderful. Bed was comfortable which is a big plus. The food at the Inn was amazing! Must try steak and ale pie, brownies are to die for as well as everything else we tried. As we didn't drive transport to and from train station was expensive, but we would stay there again.
