Just called in for a meal, been back twice since. Staff very friendly, meals were very good and priced right. Noticed how helpful both staff and patrons were if a question was asked. Children were catered for with a lounge area and everyone seemed to look out for them.

This place didn't rate on looks but once you get inside it makes you feel right at home. We stayed over-night and the digs were good. All staff were friendly and the meals were spot on. Met a few other travelers there and a good time had by all.

Well, it is what you would expect- pretty basic. But it was clean and in a superb location. The staff were really nice and the pub food was well priced with a great pub atmosphere. A great combination.

The hotel and staff are welcoming and friendly, the meals are ok the price of a room is somewhat fair but the rooms are very in need of a good clean. No milk in the fridge, wall paper and plaster coming off is not good. Dirty linen. But the location is excellent
