“Pleasant stay with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

The olde world charm of this character building is evident everywhere you go, the bar, the public rooms and of course your bedroom. If wood paneling and antique period styling isn't your cup of tea then don't expect to enjoy your stay, however if you put good food, good beer and friendly staff high up at the top of your list then this is the perfect place to stay.
My room, booked through work, was a single and as such wasn't the biggest i have ever stayed in but it had everything you need, comfy bed, clean en suite with a shower i could stand up in and get my hair wet (a bonus if your over six feet tall ) flat screen tv, etc.
Dont expect namby pampy nouvelle cuisine food either the pub food was freshly made, generous size and tasted great, no microwave chips here proper home made ones with skins on, great!!!
Breakfast equally as good and served quickly and with a smile which made it all the better.
The local brews in the bar were of great quality, perhaps one or two of the staff could do with a lesson in pulling a proper beer through a proper pump but the wait was worth it. Try the pubs own brew, made on the premises in its own microbrewery, certainly puts the big boy breweries to shame..


Overall a pleasant stay, easy walking distance for the University, very nice staff, good food, comfy what more do you want.....

Well the place has bags of character and it's own excellent micro brewery.

So in the original building the process of modernising rooms is really difficult, however despite those slightly primitive moans we had a great time, the staff were really helpful and courteous and long suffering but nothing was refused

Yes I would return and look forward to doing so.

Nice hotel in traditional style; within walking distance of town centre (though a bit far from railway station). Helpful staff. I cannot confirm some complaints about cleanliness - traditional houses may look a bit grubby, but my room & bathroom was spotless.
A slight nuisance is access to rooms through the pub only.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to noise, I would insist on a room not facing the road, and avoid nights with l...

Rooms were quirky old fashioned and in need of a good clean
Breakfast was probably the highlight of my stay but I was hungry

Overpriced for what you get frankly it's a £35 per night b&b that they charge £80 for

Stayed while on business for just one night (thankfully) but was far from impressed. Room was very old fashioned, poorly laid out, a little dirty, certainly very cold and the shower/bathroom left a lot to be desired.

WiFi wouldn't work, bar food was cheap but basic and the breakfast was below, while having to wait to 7.30am when on business is not ideal.

Staff were nice but sorry I will not use again.
