We spent one night in Room 1 last Friday evening. The accommodation is in an adjacent stable type single storey block, attached to the pub. We were concerned that there would be noise at closing time, as the rooms are adjacent to the car park, but we did not hear anything and all was peaceful.
The room was tastefully decorated with a very comfortable bed and pleasant spacious bathroom. The shower was over the bath but decent. Nice toiletries were provided with good size towels. There were tea and coffee facilities in the room plus bottles of still and sparkling water.
We had dinner in the pub's restaurant which was nicely decorated - a mixed seafood/smoked salmon starter platter to share, then fish and chips and a duck noodle dish for mains. The food was nice if not amazing.
Breakfast which was available in the same restaurant area, was a little disappointing. There was a nice cold selection of juices, fruit, cereals etc to help ourselves from, and we ordered full English and a vegetarian English from the nice breakfast menu. These plates looked lovely when they came, but were a little let down by the cooking. The meat sausage was well done on the outside which would have been fine, but it was also really dried out on the inside, as if it had been under a heat lamp for 3 days. The scrambled egg was also an odd powdery texture, and the tomatoes were underdone - we like them to be cooked through and soft. So a bit of a let down although nicely presented. Tasty black pudding though.
Overall a nice stay and we enjoyed our short visit. WiFi is available in the rooms and in the pub. If you're a visitor to the area, we would also recommend a visit to the nearby Foxton Locks, which we enjoyed a walk around in the warm sunshine next morning.
