A lovely Inn with great rooms, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fabulous, my Partner had full English and I loved the Porridge, great selection to meet every taste. The Inn also has its own Restaurant and the food was fabulous, generous portions and plenty of choice all freshly cooked to order. The staff are very friendly and approachable and nothing is too much trouble. A very good offer including the free bottle of wine, Malbec and good quality. Thank you

All staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Our room was perfectly clean. The restaurant has a vast choice on the menu (almost too much to choose from) and each meal, whether breakfast or evening, was excellent, plentiful and good value.
