Great location and the most helpful and pleasant staff. Meals both breakfast and evening were great . The evening meals were well cooked and presented and were very cost effective. Rooms were a little small but were okay.

The desserts were fantastic: Apple pie, chocolate fudge pudding, banana split and lemon sponge. And there was plenty more choice than that. Mains were also very good except for my spare ribs, where the sauce was tasteless. A real pity, because the ribs themselves were the best I've had. And the service was excellent, friendly without being over-familiar, efficient and... More

We ordered takeaway fish and chips with the family. They were cooked fresh to order and the batter is one of the best I've ever had. We ate them on the benches outside overlooking the park and it was reasonably priced. The park is just a stones throw away and has plenty to do for all ages and even has... More

Why would a place like this charging high prices serve such small portions at ok quality. The trays for chips are so small they are actually funny. What a shame no thinking other profit 😐. I know it's not murgatroys but come on guys put something back to the customers and community! Ice cream value also not much better. Again... More

This small hotel has an excellent riverside location. We enjoyed their excellent fish and chips which we ate in the beer garden, then went inside to sample a couple of well kept cask ales in the comfortable bar area, which had pleasant (mainly classic 60 & 70's) background music not too loud to interfere with conversation. Good staff, clean pub... More

Had a two night stay July 2016, we ate in the Bar and in the restaurant, the food is the same for either. The bar is a large room and a second room off the bar up two wide stairs is all that separates them..the dining room being a little more formal than the bar and has between 10 and... More

This hotel is right next to the park and river. You can walk out of the front door and in fifteen steps you are walking in the park. The rooms are fine, not to notch and the toilet in our room was a squeeze but they are ensuite with a television and WiFi. The WiFi word is surprising we were... More
