Really nice hotel/ pub, stayed here before a few times, always good food, clean and tidy rooms etc. I stayed in a different room this time which seemed to be above the kitchen which was really noisy especially early in the morning 6 am on when the extractor fan comes on. Also room service making a noise earlier than I've ever had in any hotel. I mentioned this on checkout but the person I spoke to just agreed with me. Anyway, will stay here again, nice place.
