We stayed overnight , we were not made to feel welcome by the staff one lady was extremely rude. The room was cold the tv did not work. The breakfast was not fresh it was warmed up, very poor experience from start to finish. Would not recommend this place to anyone

This is the worse place I've ever eaten. Food absolutely disgusting. This place needs a new chief and bar staff also need training on how to serve food. DO NOT EAT HERE I tried to order a few different things off the menu to be told sold out. So I ordered lasagna, chips and salad. The lasagna was like mush,...

Great pub, very quaint and old worldy...but Igor behind the bar spoiled the experience. He was the most lacklustre and rude 'barsteward' that I have ever encountered...definitely in the right place as he was clearly brought back from the dead! Come on the Golden Fleece sort your staff out!!

Lovely beds and we experienced a few noises in the night. Around 3am we heard the door handle rattle! Also the breakfast is the best breakfast I have ever eaten. Watch your plates though the tables are extremely slanted!

A top band in the back bar, good service from the bar. Spooky setting but a top top night. A wide range of ales and beers to suit most tastes. The ambience in the back bar whilst the music is on is great, with twists on modern and old classics you will tap your feet to and sing along.

Don't eat there, simple as that. I would rather have oven chips and a crispy pancake. Very dry and thrown together. The bar staff very nearly had a scrap with a punter ( that was a bit of a nob) and the room was a bit too shabby for chic
