Quaint pub with good food and comfortable rooms
What a lovely old school pub and hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was great (a lot of locals seemed to be eating here too). Room was simple but comfortable and very clean. There are a few areas that are a little tired and worn, but not to the level of impacting guests. I would be happy to stay here again

Simple and friendly with good food.
Quaintly old fashioned, which we like, with very friendly cheerful staff. The amenities were simple but perfectly adequate. The breakfast was delicious. We also ate an evening meal in their restaurant which was simple but very tasty. We felt welcome and enjoyed our stay.

6/10 Good

The hotel was very tired and stuffy. The bar, food and friendless of the staff were second to none. Our bedroom was directly above the kitchen and the noise was out of this world!!

8/10 Very good

Good sized, clean room with comfortable beds. We slept well and used the bar downstairs (good beer on tap). Food menu also available and short walk to alternative options for dinner.
