This has the potential to be a lovely, quaint and charming B&B. However, there are several things we found lacking. No one around to greet us. When the manager did come she was not the most enthusiastic. The room, though cosy with a lovely four poster bed, needs updating. The shower tiles were moule ridden and again, just general maintenance... More

Dropped in for lunch - cold and unwelcoming - paint peeling from window frames, table not wiped properly (rings from beer glasses) lights that weren't switched on or didn't work lending the main dining area a darkness. Food OK - very hot - but a large amount of watercress on a plate does not constitute a 'watercress salad' and if... More

Something is going on here and my guess is new management. Clearly working as the place is already looking smarter and they have an excellent menus. Highly recommended if you are in town.

Met a couple of colleagues for a business lunch. The pub was quiet and we sat in teh sunny court yard. Food was typical pub grub, served quickly with a nice pint.

Visited this last Sunday. First patrons of the lunch service and about 40 of us in total. The set up was nice in the "private" room we'd booked, right next to carvery. We all started queuing for the carvery and waiting our turn to then have members of the public kicking off about standing and queueing and waiting. All be... More
