Easy to find and looked lovely from the outside. The pub was fairly quiet on arrival and we were allocated a room in the main building, room 3 I think. Room was clean and well appointed, looked fairly modern. There is a stable block with other rooms just at the back of the hotel. Staff were lovely, very friendly and...

I chose this hotel as it is close to the A1. Checked in at about 19:00 to discover that we had been given a double room instead of the twin that we booked. The staff quickly resolved the situation and we were given another room. We also received a free meal for the inconvenience. Rooms were nice and clean. The...

This is currently a Spirit pub, branded Fayre and Square but we understand it is being taken over by Greene King. Hopefully they will spend some money on the building which is tired and in need of some refurbishment. The menu is standard pub fayre. Well priced with good attentive service. Food was fine with reasonable portions.

The rooms are outside to the pub and I found it noisy on a night and from the room above me. On entering the pub there was a smell of old cooking fat so that put me off eating there on the evening and for breakfast. I had to ask for extra tea bags and milk as only two in...

I stayed here one night and also ate in the bar. Everything was reasonably priced and staff were friendly. I stayed in what I think used to be stables and was surprised to find my room was immaculate and had a generous sized double. The stairway up to room was creaky but this is an uncontrollable factor. The shower was...

Seen the reviews and must say they are misleading. We stayed in the 'stables' and yes a bit noisy at times as the workers where leaving but the place was comfortable and clean. Was staying to attend an old friend s funeral but was very happy with the place

Been here several times now for lunch and have always been happy with the food. I had the smothered chicken which was delicious and my mother in law had the fish and chips which she enjoyed. We had the 2 meals for £8:99 which was plenty big enough. Coke and lemonade at £2:45 each is steep and no refills either....

Called in for a drink before going elsewhere for lunch(wouldn't eat here based on previous experiences), asked to move into dining room as bar is over 18's only. No area to sit for just a drink so we left.

Stayed here only for one night and had a horrendous time. Room Size was good and decoration fine to be fair but damp musty smell in room. Also Water was only Luke warm, however long you ran the water for and this was the same on the evening and the morning. Food as stated in previous statements was pub grub...
