I have booked in at this Inn for the last six years, four times a year, and up to the change of management a year ago was absolutely fine. It has in my view now gone downhill, as I was refused ordering an evening meal because they were too busy feeding people most of whom weren't even staying the night. Very angry about it!

Booked 4 rooms and breakfast for a work trip, The first day no one turned up to cook breakfast so we had to go to Tesco. On the third day we had to wait 20 mins for the restaurant to open as the chef had again overslept. Then kept waiting further 30 mins for the food to turn up which made us all late for work.
