No where else to stay locally for a family party, so stayed here. We're told there would be no breakfast as the lady was off on maternity, but no alternatives offered. Staff behind bar were good, but that's where it ended. The room was very dirty (carpet/counter top/sink/bath), and there were no cups/glasses/drink making facilities despite a kettle being in...

In past years, I love castle cary, so i thought, we would stay there, because of relatives who live near by. The staff were great and very helpful, however the room was not great. It was clean, but dated. The mattresses;s were very very poor, and needed to be thrown away. Luckily we were in the family room so we... More

The rooms are dated with stained carpets that you wouldn't won't to walk on without your shoes on !! Using the bathroom for the first time my husband lifted the toilet seat to... More

Nice, clean and inexpensive little pub. Would benefit from new mattresses, but generally fine. Great spot for an overnight stay. Lovely landlady and the cider is good. Didn't eat, just slept............

I booked in to the Horse Pond. The first thing I noticed, on arrival, was that there was no signage anywhere showing that accommodation was available. An Inn no longer automatically means that rooms can be let and it was a surprising omission. On reaching the front door, the menu inside the menu board was wet, faded and the ink... More
