Stayed here on 7th August as visiting Chapel Down winery - which was just 4 mins away by taxi. Owner / Landlord of the pub / B&B couldn't have been more helpful and very friendly and welcoming. The room we stayed in which was the premier double room, was fantastic. Spotlessly clean, great bathroom with powerful shower and choice of a bath too and the complimentary tea / coffee facilities were great. Bed was extremely comfortable. Highly recommend staying here, great value for money... would book here again without hesitation... thank you!
