Positive Reviews

Great food.

The food here is one of the pub’s greatest assets, made from locally sourced ingredients and cooked fresh every day. Classic pub fare is served and it has found favour with the people who visit here.

Great selection of ales.

This is a genuine English pub, dating back centuries, specialising in real ales. The customers, especially those who know their ales, appreciate the selection on offer.

Staff friendly and cheerful.

Another great asset here is the staff, who are invariably described as friendly, helpful and cheerful. The pub has been described as cosy and traditional with great ambience. This is mostly due to the staff, creating the atmosphere that a country pub need

Negative Reviews

Some rooms need refurbishing.

The pub dates back to the 14th century, but the building is very well maintained. The guest house part looks dated too, but in a different way. The guest house building has been partially refurbished according to guests who have stayed here in recent time

Small bathroom.

It is repeatedly noticed that with space being a scarce commodity, guest houses tend to allocate the least possible amount of space for the bathroom. A private bathroom is great, but these tiny bathrooms are cramped with a bare minimum amount of space.

Thin walls.

The rooms are not soundproofed and it’s almost impossible not to hear sounds and noise coming from the other rooms.
