    Brilliant. Sam and Jana were fantastic hosts. Excellent food, good selection of beers and whiskeys. My room was lovely. Really looking forward to sitting in front of the fire place and enjoying a proper beer again soon. We will certainly be visiting again.

    Yes breakfast will be included and you will have a large selection of items to choose from. Breakfast will most likely be served in All Saint's side room, but it might be a good idea to double check when you check in.
