Me & my boyfriend stayed here in January for a one night stay. Our room was lovely & spacious and the bathroom was beautiful! The staff were friendly, accommodating & down to earth.

Good pub resturant with well presnted tasty food. I had the fillet steak and the wife had the lamb special. Both meals were fair value, tasty and well presented. The staff were polite and attentive without being intrusive. We enjoyed our night out.
