We were a party of 9 for lunch. Everything was overcooked, hard and dry. My grandson had sausages that were so hard I had to cut them. We had been there after lockdown and it had been excellent. We would have complained but were pushed for time
Working away from Home, my firm put me in this place for one night. I pulled up outside and thought OMG where have they sent me!!!! Upon entering the pub/hotel I was greeted with a warm welcome from the bar person and 3 locals having a tipple. checked into my room which was a bit cold but it didn't take long to warm up. Entering the bar for my evening meal (which was lovely) again greeted with happy faces, Long story short I ended up having a fab time in a great place stooped with history. I got a bacon roll and coffee for grab and go breakfast, ready and waiting for me at the time I said I would be leaving.
We stopped overnight on the 16 November and were not disappointed in our stay. We sat next to the inglenook Fireplace, the log fire was so warming and the aroma of burning logs did not disappoint. Our food coupled with the local real ale went down a treat as did the service from the very friendly lady behind the bar who joined in our conversation with the locals who were also in. A great room and top class hot full English finished off our trip, we will certainly stay there again.
If you are looking for a stay in an old inn in a tiny rural village, that has real ales a cozy log fire, extremely friendly and helpful staff, very chatty locals, good pub grub at reasonable prices and an excellent breakfast, then this is the place for you.
I love this place. We booked a room and I wasn't expecting very much for the price I paid but I was very pleasantly surprised. The room was spotlessly clean and it was very quiet there. We had a quick drink in the pub before retiring, the ales are great and locally brewed. Breakfast was a little late but we still managed to leave only a few minutes later than planned. The zoo was a surprise, loved seeing Meerkats and being able to get so close to them. I'd definitely return.
We spent our honeymoon here and it turned out to be everything we'd hoped for. Lots of people had recommended this hotel to us, and it certainly matched our expectations. The cuisine was fantastic, the ambience was wonderful, and every staff member was very helpful and pleasant. Thank you for making our special occasion even more memorable. I'm sure we'll be back.
Lovely pub cosy atmosphere friendly staff dog friendly! Amazing fire Mushroom and Spinach wellington highly recommended followed by syrup sponge and custard. Will definitely return i advise booking as lots of tables reserved.
Popped into the Brocket for a lunchtime sandwich after our walk. Alas they were not very good, granary bread was basic wholemeal and the fillings equally basic all rather bland and tasteless. Expected more considering the price. Shame as it’s a great little country pub with equally pleasant staff.
Arrived on a cold winters evening after a longs day travelling to receive a warm welcome by the open fire. Shortly after my friend was taken ill unexpectedly and the land lady sat with us for hours making sure he was alright. Thank you. She even rang us the following week to make sure he was ok. Top notch. The rooms were very comfortable, the beer nice and the breakfasts great.
My first visit to this pub - the food was excellent and staff were friendly and helpful. It is well worth a stop by after or before a walk around the local area. The garden is lovely to sit in, especially good for walkers and cyclists.
