Wonderful old pub, great food and service, also ambiance by the bucket load. A wonderful way to spend a rainy Friday Evening. Also enjoyed the history portrayed in photos and paintings . The fire was on as well so it was super cosy.

We stayed here so that we could go kayaking. However we really enjoyed this hotel, it is very quaint, with a tea room. The staff are lovely. We also tried the food and this was great too! Well worth a visit!
