We stayed one night and it was really pleasant. The room was clean and well decorated. Staff were pleasant and polite. Would stay here again if I'm down that way. Close to town centre with a supermarket across the carpark. Private parking and lots of space too.

Visited another venue but having found they didn't cook on a Wednesday, we found Markets Tavern, and very pleased that we did. Lovely garlic bread, scampi cooked just right and the tender rump steak was one of the best that my husband had tasted. So if you want a decent, (not huge ) but well cooked meal, all at a... More

4 of us went here 1 had the gammon which didn't look great . But 2 of us had curry dishes which we enjoyed . The herbed diced potatoes were lovely and the other person had a salad which he enjoyed . Overall nice surrounding with decent grub and resonable prices.

We all had a curry, but 3 different ones, all were good and reasonable priced, a drink was also in lncluded in the meal price. We will defiantly go there again. There were tables outside, which would be good in fine weather.

We stayed as a family of 4 for two nights. We booked a triple room with an extra bed. This consisted of 2 bedrooms and a separate bathroom. So basically a suite.
