We met friends here for dinner and decided to stay over. We stayed in the luxury suite, which I must stay was fantastic. The suite had a bedroom, lounge and lovely bathroom with a roll top bath and separate double shower cubicle. The decor was fab and it was warm and homely. There was a coffee machine and kettle with...

We stayed in a lovely room which was clean and fresh. The staff were very attentive and friendly . The breakfast the next day was also tasty and plentiful. My partner is coeliac and couldn't eat some of the breakfast available but this was ok. Gluten free sausages and bread wouldn't cost a fortune but this didn't ruin a very...

Country inn with a friendly welcome. Stayed 2 nights in a clean room with king size bed and good shower. Room quite small with old shabby, tiny wardrobe and dressing table but nevertheless we were comfortable enough. First night meal was disappointing when I chose lamb in red wine sauce. It had very little flavour, was overcooked (I like it...

This newly-refurbished pub with en suite rooms is a huge hit. It offers very pleasing dining inside and out with a lovely sunny forecourt and huge rear garden. We had the Lebanese flatbread with a mediterranean salad and chargrilled chicken breast and the roasted butternut squash burrito with spicy rice. Both were delicious and in generous portions. The ale was...

I called in today while walking on the North Downs Way. It's about 10/15 minutes off the path. Only had a couple of pints but there was a good selection of local beers. The two I tasted were both very well kept. It's very clean and although I didn't see the rooms it would be very convenient for walkers on...

Nicely renovated pub, very cosy, huge garden, friendly and efficient staff, excellent food, generous portions, everything is perfect. I can t wait to come back. It s a little gem. I had the best fish and chips I ever had; tartare sauce was excellent. My partner had a massive and fresh Stilton ploughman with warm baguette. Thank you so much...

Stayed a Saturday night and the room was lovely, clean and comfortable. Only downside was the noise of the plumbing system. Food was good and choice of beers wide. Breakfast was also excellent. A lovely quiet country retreat
