Very picturesque village and the pub fits right in. They took very special care to social distance and managed to get us into dinner even though we had not pre-booked. Staff were very friendly, even down to the cleaners, which is unusual. Would definitely want to come back.

Terrible place to stay if you require anything
Troubles checking in only one person working bar/restaurant/checkin. Very pleasant young man tho. Room was on 3rd floor narrow small stairs with low roof. Lost power for 7hrs. No extra blankets, no flashlights, candles nothing provided. Halls did have emergency lights nothing for rooms. No water for 8hrs couldn’t use restroom. No employees at property after 9pm. On your own! Not as expected when booked.In the morning one young woman working restaurant/bar and checkout couldn’t process our checkout said they would do it later and email a receipt. 3days now still no receipt.
