Although we have visited The Tower Bank Arms many times over recent years this is the first time we have stayed at the pub. Fortunately we were given an upgrade and stayed in the Methera room which is the largest of the four rooms. The room had views overlooking the picturesque village. Bearing in mind the pub and accommodation is very dog friendly, the room was nevertheless very clean, nicely furnished and spacious. The bed was very comfortable. Due to the location of the pub in the small village, parking is at a premium at the front of the premises but luckily the owner adopts a common sense approach and ensures that residents cars are accommodated. We ate in the bar area rather than the dining room due to us having a dog. As usual the log fire was blazing and the cosy atmosphere inside the pub is something very special. Having eaten in the pub before we knew what to expect. Happily standards haven't slipped one bit and our evening meal was very good, with more than generous portions and reasonably priced. The full English breakfast was also excellent and very filling. A very special thank you to all the staff who are friendly, good humoured, approachable and professional, in particular to the manager Jimmy who is a credit to the Tower Bank. We'll certainly return and hopefully the pub won't lose any of its charm.
