The Mote has both an upstairs mezzanine and room downstairs. Excepting of dog lovers and great customer service. We had the fish and chips, burger with bacon/cheddar cheese and vergie burger with Halloumi. The service was excellent and the draught Sharps cider was delicious.

We visited after a long walk for a very welcome drink and a slice of cake. The cake was delicious. The staff were really friendly and welcoming, even though they were busy with a large group. Would highly recommend.
