We stayed here one night and the room,food and service were excellent. The inn, is of course, quite isolated and excellent for walkers. Take note that there is no moblile phone access but they do have wifi.

Whilst out for a walk, in a group of six, came across the CB Inn. Feeling peckish we thought we'd eat there but saw that they stopped serving at 2:30pm. It was now 2:25 so didn't think we'd get served.
We asked and were enthusiastically welcomed in to sit down. Drinks and food ordered without drama. Most of us went for the roast beef which was delicious. The other diner in our group also enjoyed their offering.
All the staff were keen, welcoming and very pleasant.
The dining area was very pleasant, as was the whole pub area.
We only saw the downstairs bar and dining area which were lovely. I can only assume the residential rooms will be as nice and we are considering a stay there in the near future.

Just returned from what was an AMAZING Easter break at the CB, couldn't fault a thing. Staff and food are second to none, large selection of local gin that the friendly young man behind the bar told us about & what was best with what gin, lets just say our heads where a little sore Sunday morning but worth it! Seriously looking forward to our next visit to them!

Just spent a weekend here for my Dad's round-number birthday.
Mum and Dad have been many times before, but for my partner, my sister and myself it was the first time.
We could not have been luckier with the weather - a beautiful warm Spring weekend with glorious sunshine, and the views from the hotel really are magnificent. We'd done some research on their website with rooms and most of us were lucky, although we thought 16 was dark even on a bright day with the lights on, and the view was out over the car park. 18 and 11 were lovely, though.
The disappointment lay in the food which tried hard but only just scraped above average for all of us, and we really aren't picky "lah di dah" eaters.
There were several problems, mainly just that most of the dishes just simply lacked flavour, and over 2 nights (3 for Mum and Dad) we really had a range of dishes.
Also I think they must have had different chefs - the goats cheese mousse I had was nothing at all like the goats cheese mousse Dad had 2 days earlier.
My other half (American) said his was one of the worst burgers he'd ever had.
The highlight was the puds, which were very good.
I think maybe we just went with the wrong expectations - if you're a walker and want food that's above average, you won't be disappointed, but if food is very important to you, you might be a bit let down. I think maybe they just have different chefs here attempting the same menu, so some nights you might be luckier than others. It has a very cosy atmosphere though and if you were out walking on a lovely day, it would be a very cosy place to come back to for a pint and a great night's sleep.
