First time visitor and really glad we came. The welcome was fine and the rooms nicely laid out. Eat at the restaurant and found a good menu with friendly staff. Service was excellent and constant throughout the meal. Looking forward to our next stay.

Just returned from an excellent meal at the Percy Arms to celebrate Father's Day, there were 7 of us, excellent food, and the service was very good. Lovely surroundings and a great play area for the children.
