We stayed here for two nights and had a fantastic experience, if you have extremely high expectations then this is not the place for you! We loved the quaint rooms - one of our party is 6' 1" and had great fun trying to take a shower! But we took it all in our stride - The landlord and staff...

We stayed here for literally a bed for the night which visiting silverstone. It was £50 a room. The room was basic but nice. Very comfy bed. Bathroom could do with a bit of an uplift. We had tea and coffee in our room and a TV. The bar staff were lovely and very helpful. We didn't eat while there.

We stayed one night for the MotoGP at Silverstone. Room was £50 per night so expecting basic. You will need to take all toiletries, even hand wash as they only provided 2 towels. The room was cleanish but I think they must have overlooked the bathroom sink as it was very dirty looked as if someone had been sick in...

A reasonable choice of good home cooking. Friendly staff. Cost based on size of meal portion. It's pub food but good pub food. Good value for money but I probably wouldn't bother with a dessert as they are less tasty.vThere are rooms but not seen them.
