The atmosphere there is also good, friendly staff... More

Room was great no sign of damp but a very strong smell of it. Opening the bathroom door was like getting a whiff of old wet towels. Room smelt a tad damp too.

Disappointing Sunday lunch - overcooked, tough beef, teeny Yorkshire pud (with a stuffing ball in the centre!), potatoes and parsnips that tasted deep fried, veg ok. Have had much better carveries elsewhere for the same price? Will look for somewhere else to eat when we next visit relatives in Lydney.

Thankyou for your response. We had served over 100 people on the carvery and no other negative comments were forthcoming about the beef.All the potatoes and parsnips are straight from the oven roasted and all the veg is indeed prepared on the day so as to maintain freshness. If you would have informed me on the day i could have... More
