5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Worth the effort to go here for food/drink/sleep.
Trip was during first part of Covid restriction easing - was very impressed with the measures taken on outdoor seating and dining, good social distancing practiced and felt very safe and relaxed. Food and drink great as always here, rooms more than adequate for a short stop over - highly recommended.

Pub and accommodation
Lovely looking place. Accommodation was set in adjacent barn conversions. I understand we are in unprecedented times so I’ll make allowances. The property was cold (heating needed turning up before arrival) the curtain was missing from the rail across the front door (maybe it was waiting to be made), button coverings missing from the upholstered table for cases to sit on. The sofa cover needed tidying and washing and there was a small cold breakfast in a fridge near the bed that made noise all night (large wardrobe, maybe it could go in there). All small things that could have been corrected and made the place so lovely. It was clean, the decor was nice, and the bathroom quite modern.
