We had a really lovely time staying at the hunters moon. Rooms were nice and the food and service was great. Our only complaint is that the shower just trickled out and the mattress was a bit springy but apart from that it was a really lovely old pub and B and B and we would stay again.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The main plus point was the welcoming nature and helpfulness of all the staff I met. I was allocated room 2 which opened directly on to the garden - ideal for someone who was staying with a dog. The room was clean and simply furnished but good value for what I paid. My pre-ordered breakfast was served very promptly and couldn’t be faulted. I also ate just the restaurant in the evening I arrived with a guest and the food was ‘good pub grub’. Service was excellent.
