We stayed here because it was the cheapest dog friendly accommodation in the area and we were pleasantly surprised. Such great value for money. The room was lovely, the staff were very helpful and the breakfast was delicious. Got a lovely feel from the place and would definitely return and recommend

The pub has an interesting feel, with a atmosphere. The host was friendly and attentive, good communications (phone and email), but without being intrusive.
The room was fine, and good value. The host said it was due for upgrade, coming soon, but we thought it was OK as it is. Certainly very clean and with all facilities including cafetiere and real coffee, which we at least have never seen in our price bracket before.
Breakfast was tailor made to what we wanted and the ingredients were good, but the bacon was superb! A local triumph!
Overall, we thought it good and excellent value.

What a lovely review, thank you. I hope the refurb will enhance the place without taking away its "unique " atmosphere.
I will pass your comments to our butcher. See you soon I hope.

Came here on Saturday and had a meal in the restaurant which was lovely and then an overnight stay with my mum. We had a very cute pink twin room which was extremely cosy, clean and comfortable. Was nice to have a meal, few wines and then walk across the carpark to bed. We will definitely return.

We arrived at the Augustus John on Sunday afternoon to find the pub closed. Finally we managed to get some attention and given the keys to the accommodation. We were told that the chef was off on Monday but if we wanted breakfast they could put something together, we declined that but said we would probably have breakfast Tuesday. We were given menu to fill in which we did the following morning but then found we couldn't hand it in as the pub wasn't open on the Monday and there as no-one to hand it too, we had breakfast elsewhere!
The room was part of a former stable. It was very cold in the room when we arrived, the radiator was turned off, luckily there was also a plug in radiator so it did warm up quite quickly. The room itself was quite small and dark but as it was only for a couple of nights so we could manage with that, there was a mark on the carpet by the bed near the door of the bathroom that didn't look at all pleasant! The bathroom was small and would benefit from an upgrade. The shower curtain was black at the bottom and the grout in the tiles grimey. The towels grey and very thin.
A very nice lady checked us out and gave us a bit of a discount when we told her about the issues, I only hope the owner takes notice and does a bit of work to the accommodation.
I wouldn't stay here again!

Sorry things were not to your satisfaction. I am pleased to say the pub is being purchased from our present landlords and we will will be undertaking a programme of refurbishment.
