The food was good solid pub food but we were impressed and so often we are not and leave many places dissappointed; here we did not. Sticky... More

Lovely location to getaway from it all. Friendly and helpful staff eager to help. Reception on arrival could be improved rather than a note on the reception counter. Food and service in the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner was very good. Relaxed, not pushy. The bar became busy with a party of shooters who livened the place up. The... More

The staff were very pleasant and welcoming. The room was a little tired and suffered from bad condensation on the window and door to the shared balcony. The bathroom, whilst clean was also a little dated and the shower ineffectual. Breakfast was very good. a good choice and well cooked and presented. We ate dinner in the restaurant which was...

Spent two nights here whilst exploring the moors and coast. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food in the bar and restaurant was very good. The room was clean the only problem we found was that the water pressure was very low and the room only had a handheld shower in the bath which was not much use.

We have stayed here a number of times over the past 25 years and the new owners provide a warm welcome. The food was excellent and the service first class. I particularly enjoyed the ham hock and black pudding terrine. The cosy bar serves a good range of beers and 43 different gins! Limited wine list but very good value.... More
