Unfortunately as suspected the food isn't home made....It's good old brake brothers ding food. So all this about home made by our chef is not real its meal in a bag either dinged in a microwave or at the very least made by a ready meal company very disappointing

Arrived Friday night - lovely friendly pub staff...

Sat night had a lovely meal in restaurant and went up to bed. Knowing the 'hotel' is above...

Stayed here last April for two nights, had our main meals in the restaurant. Good food and the main double room was very good with a nice bathroom. Breakfast was continental, so could improve if they could do a full English.

We chose to sit in the courtyard garden and it was lovely! A tree provided the necessary shade, it was a hot, sunny day. I chose a jacket potato with chilli which was served with a salad and it was delicious. Service was excellent, friendly staff and only a short wait for our food.

We had a meal here before boarding the cross-channel ferry to the Hoek. The service was friendly and the food bgood for what it was. The total bill was just over £50 for two starters, main courses, glasses of wine, a beer, one coffee and one dessert, which we thought was pretty good.

This is a jewel of a pub, They not only have a load of history, but more importantly they do really great food and the guest ales make this a pub well worth the visit. My partner doesn't eat meat and they are always very helpful when it comes to tweaking the menu slightly to fit her needs. Highly recommended...

We stayed at this lovely little hotel from Tuesday 9-Thursday 11 August 2016. It was a lovely little break I booked for me and my boyfriend to have some alone time away. We arrived around 12:30 and were greeted and taken to our room. Room 5 was lovely and spacious and nice and clean. The hotel itself is down a...
