I stayed to get a room for the night, and that's what it was; the room beneath the pub which was clean, and comfortable. The shower though was poor and with no radiator, cold and so my towel from the previous evening stayed damp.

Stayed one night before flying from Stansted. The room was warm and comfortable and represented good value for money. The pub itself is very traditional with a good choice of beers.The staff were friendly and helpful. The pub does not do food and we went to the local Wetherspoons for breakfast

Traditional drinkers pub good selection of beers, bands every Saturday and Sunday and some Fridays. Great free food on Sundays from 4pm. Friendly atmosphere. Good place to meet up with friends for a drink and to listen to music.

We stayed just one night, on our way to a wedding, and expected a good but basic stay. In fact, the staff could not have been more helpful, the room was amazingly good value, being clean and spacious of its type. Another time we would ask for Room 1, simply because of the view over the water meadows. If you... More

Had our wedding celebration there last year was fantastic, couldn't wish for a nicer couple running a pub. Live music is good, food on a Sunday is always extremely good which is free. The new outside area is child friendly and comfortable. Can't fault this pub in any way.

Thoroughly enjoyable stay - pleasant (superior) room with a good view over the water meadows, with the dog it was great to be able to sit outside and eat on the deck area which has tables provided just for the use by guests in the accommodation. Nice and clean room with a small fridge and kettle - not much more... More

The room I got was pretty good, especially for the money. Everything was clean and there was a decent shower and a TV and other conveniences. There was not a huge amount of storage space, the windows in my room were small, the view was not great and there was a little bit of noise from the busy pub upstairs.... More
