There's two sides to this pub. As a locals boozer it's obviously a popular place and gets pretty busy. However as a b&b it's awful. The rooms are dirty, unhygienic and generally not fit for purpose. Plus they're directly over the bar so don't expect any peace until after midnight especially if there's a darts match on. It's a shame... More

Ok. The good stuff. Breakfast was great. The price was reasonable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bed was reasonably comfortable. The bad stuff. The room we had was over the bar and noisy until midnight. The cobbled road outside was very loud when traffic went by. We didn't get much sleep. When we arrived it looked like... More

Cosy pub, food was excellent. Can recommend the jacket potato with chilli lovely!! We also had the toasted sandwiches and the burger was a hit with my husband. Didn't try the sweets as were all too full but had some classics like sticky toffee pudding and the likes would definitely go again.

we booked for a one night stay. The staff and owners are very friendly and helpful. This inn was built in 1611 so it has a bit of character and has limitations. The carpets are worn and do need replacing and the rooms just need a bit of sprucing up. The bed was comfortable and the room was warm for... More

If you were expecting a swish Premier Inn experience, you may be initially disappointed by the lack of mobile phone signal, the poor tv reception, the wonky floors and the thin towels. But this is a 17th Century Inn at a good value price. After a 3 night stay we were used to the quirky accommodation. There was a warm... More

Owner couldn't have been more helpful when we arrived drenched after a days cycling in the rain. Nothing flashy here, simple honest food, no fuss rooms. Saturday night and the pub was rammed with locals, young, old, eating or drinking. Clearly the place has got it right for the locals and with a good few passing by it works well.... More
