Enforced stay due to house works. Rooms are very comfortable, although bathroom was tiny. King size bed. Pub and rooms dog friendly (additional charge per dog in bedroom). Food remains a good standard.

Thank you for taking the time to review The Willow House. We are dog friendly, we just need to be told if you would like to bring a dog. We allow dogs in our bars aswell as the rooms, just not in the restaurant. Regards

Upon arrival the staff were friendly and informative and I was quickly shown to my room which was a converted building to the rear of the building. The room...

Only stayed here for one night to attend a party locally but was really impressed. Expected a small guest house type place but there's so much more to it having a popular pub with good ales and restaurant on the premises and friendly staff. The rooms were in a separate annexe and were spacious and comfortable. Morning breakfast was tasty...

Stayed at the Willow House for 2 nights in August. Very comfortable large room. Food was very good in the Restaurant and we joined in with the local pub quiz. Staff were very friendly and they offered gluten free options for my wife.

The accommodations was very pleasant, clean and sufficiently roomy. The evening meal was fairly standard to be honest but breakfast was good and served by the chef/owner who was friendly and helpful. We would happily stay here again.

Thank you for your review. The Willow House was originally 3 cottages built in 1556, and has been a number of things before being turned into a pub/restaurant. We look forward to seeing you again. Regards
