Firstly, the pub bit is great, I’d like it as my local - friendly staff and customers and an excellent dog. Food was okay, nothing great just standard pub grub however....
The accommodation was awful. We were in the pub, upstairs. At first told we were told didn’t need a key as ‘nobody else goes up there’ - the room was more of a store room with a couple of old beds thrown in. It was dreadfully cluttered with a huge old armchair taking up considerable space and a huge wardrobe that you couldn’t use as full of Christmas decorations and rather charmingly, a skeleton. There is NO EN-SUITE, which was advertised, there was a bathroom across the way, among a host of doors marked ‘private’ - there were no towels actually in the bathroom and no soap but a half empty tube of sensodyne and a used ladies razor. Worst of all, the bathroom was shared by unknown number of people and there was no working lock on the door.
The large sleigh bed frame in the room had hardboard nailed to the base, so no slats or springs and an old mattress on top which was a good 6” narrower than the base. The bedding smelt musty and stale, looking and smelling like it had been there since the sixties. Single bed was lumpy and worn.
So, by all means pop in for a drink but under no circumstances stay the night....
We stayed for one night only, and whilst it was fine, a longer stay wouldn't suit us.
The room was comfortable, warm and cleanish. There was nowhere to plug the bedside light into and I wished I hadn't looked behind the bed.
Breakfast was ordered the previous evening and was a little hap hazard as to whether you got your toast or orange juice etc.
That said the service was very personable and friendly and the rates very reasonable.
Used the Lampet Arms for a stop over for a family wedding . The Landlady was so warm & welcoming , the room was cozy and comfortable . The breakfast the following morning was hearty & homely . Will definately return to try out there reputable sunday lunch .The two Andrews & Jo
At The Lampet Arms you stay in a converted stable behind the pub right next to the garden area. We particularly enjoyed having a drink next to our room on a warm summer evening. Unfortunately, we thought the room was quite small for two adults, a teenager and a largish dog (greyhound), especially as we had just come from another pub/hotel where the room had been much larger. If the weather had been cold and/or wet and we hadn't been able to access the outdoor space, it would have felt very cramped.
On the plus side, the bathroom was fine and we had everything we needed in the room. The Wi-Fi connection was also very good.
A lovely place to stay with a very warm welcome, and a friendly chat every time you step outside your door! The room was extremely spacious and well stocked.A very pretty creative, arty pub with delicious home cooked food that is certainly value for money.
Dogs are not just welcomed here, they are treated as part of the family and totally welcomed into the pub too. Lovely walks a stones throw away, not to mention the quaint Broughton Castle and grounds. We will definitely return on our next trip.
