Rude staff, bad decor, bad food. will definitely not be returning. Manager acted like he was better than everyone but was quite the opposite. Very disappointing. Extremely upset with the quite frankly awful manners of the staff.

A lovely find just outside the City Wall with only a five minute walk into the town centre. We were greeted after paying and putting our cases into out rooms with a lovely coal fire where we enjoyed a pint. The bedrooms were warm and comfortable with en suite. In the morning the breakfast was lovely and vegetarian sausages available....

A lovely, friendly Inn on the edge of the city. An easy walk into the centre and the Barbican theatre is less than 5 minutes walk. Good sized rooms, clean and tidy. No TV in the room but that's a plus point for me. Excellent wifi. This is a second visit which speaks for itself.
