Just fabulous!
We had an absolutely fantastic stay here, having driven past the pub a number of months before and reading reviews we said we were going to go stay there. So booked for our anniversary. The accommodation was beautifully clean, for us, it was like a stay somewhere before Covid happened! We also booked to eat in the restaurant and had a great experience, the drinks and food on offer were enough to suit most tastes. The fish and chips, which i am sometimes wary to have in pubs, was amazing, if i had to find something to complain about it would have been that there needed to be more mushy peas! However i am sure that if i had of asked they would have brought me more. We had the sharing starter and the charcuterie meat is some of the best we've had. The breakfast the following morning was more than enough to satisfy. We will definitely be going again. Our room was in a stable block across the road but we knew this before arriving and it was no problem for us.
