Didn't enjoy my stay here at all, food was bland, rooms were dated, tiny and next to a very busy road. Mattress super uncomfortable. Breakfast was not nice either. Not a destination place - nowhere to walk to as no pathways on the roads around it.

Amazing value and nothing was too much trouble. A special thank you to the witress who spent time talking to us and our little boy. Thank...

Went here today with my wife for our 21st anniversary. Never been before but passing quite fancied it. Restaurant was relatively quiet, we sat next to a table of 8 Senior ladies. We ordered a drink ok. I like not being rushed and am ok with food taking longer than usual. I noticed none of the ladies had any food...

Have been coming to this Inn since 2015 but this year the food seems much better. Very good a la carte menu to choose from and also a set 2 or 3 course menu for Monday to Thursday. We've eaten from both menus and have enjoyed each meal. Staff, I think, are mainly Hungarian and are very helpful, polite and...

Very nice atmosphere on arriving and a nice little focal point of a well, lit up, with goldfish swimming below a glass floor. Shown to our table by an eastern European waiter with more than a passing resemblance to fawlty towers Manuel. It quickly became noticeable that it was a full compliment of non British staff, some more legible than...

The upside of this place was that they were generally very friendly and particularly to my dog, but unfortunately that's where it ends. The room was basic, hot and next to an extractor fan. The bedside light didn't work and the ceiling light was hanging by its wires from the ceiling. The pub itself is ok, but any quaintness has...

After driving past this place many times and promising ourselves a visit we finally made it through the doors and it was well worth the wait. The pub itself is very pretty and quaint and the restaurant is delightful. The food is fantastic, in fact I cannot remember the last time I enjoyed a meal out so much. The portion...
