We were advised to book into the Roade House when invited to attend my sister's 50th birthday party with friends in the local pub, the Cock Inn. It couldn't have been more convenient, as directly across the road from the pub and now under the same ownership.
We had room 7 which was large and had everything we needed, and more - the minibar contained complimentary soft drinks and chocolate bars, plus there was a carton of Pringles, 2 mini packs of cookies and 2 bottles of water - a lovely touch. The bed was comfortable and there was WiFi. The over-bath shower, although electric, was surprisingly powerful which was good.
Breakfast is taken in a room downstairs. It was good quality and tasty. However that room felt very bland and we were the only people there. As it was an unusually warm day, it would have been nice to eat out on the patio. We did get the waiter to find the key so we could finish our drinks outside which was lovely.
The hotel (more of a B&B now - the old bar seems to be more of lounge now) is a slightly odd place as it now has a deli in one section which serves afternoon teas and light meals as well as items like homemade pies from the deli counter. We did enjoy a late afternoon tea break in there and sampled a cream tea and toasted sandwich which were both good quality.
Overall the hotel/B&B suited our requirements and was good value.
