Great place to stay
Had a 2 night stay in this lovely pub. Our room was clean and warm and had all the usual facilities - tea ,coffee TV and ensuite bathroom. Food (evening meal and breakfast) we're excellent and reasonably priced too. Service was second to none and all staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.
