    Amazing stay! We enjoyed a warm welcome and staff were incredibly helpful when we needed anything...even when we had no idea where the wedding was we were supposed to be attending! Great breakfast and evening meal and beautiful building in a lovely location. Perfect.

    Very busy popular pub. Which means if you're planning an early night you're not going to get much sleep before midnight. (So stay somewhere else) but if you want Nice rooms, Friendly staff & Lovely location then this is the place for you.
