Went for an impromptu lunch whilst killing some time in town. The food was fine and it was perfectly friendly although I wouldn't chose to go back or recommend. It's a bit spit and sawdust and although friendly the staff seem preoccupied whilst we were there. There are plenty of better places to eat in Royston.

We have stayed here twice now. The room, both times, is set above the pub looking out on the High Street. It is clean, good bed and small but functional shower room. Good breakfast and the staff are friendly.

When I called I only wanted one night but the lady on the phone said they don't have any rooms. My brother in law already checked so I knew they did. When I made this clear to her then she said they book minimum 2 nights only. Bad start, I should have known to avoid from here. When checked in... More

We stayed at this pub with rooms as we were attending a family event at the hotel next door. I was very disappointed with the rooms although clean and very basic I would have at least expected a double bed in the double room booked and not a very small "double" we are not s large couple but I ended...

loo smelt of deep fat fryer, room shabby , tired. Owner seemed annoyed when reported that tv not working ' well it worked alright at the weekend' -wrong answer! Wifi not working also in the room. Lovely time away as planned, a little marred by pricey accommodation which lacked something.

Normal pub accommodation not bad but nothing special. Just clean enough. Old spring mattresses and cold rooms. Switch on heaters that trip really easily before the room is warm. Only 2 tea bags and no coffee with 2 small milks. We all know you need at least 2 in a cup. Stayed 2 nights and there was no towel change... More

Stayed here for two nights on business. I'm really quite flexible about where I stay, but I'll be asking work to stop booking people here. Wish I'd checked Trip Advisor first. Pictures on the website are VERY misleading. The pub itself is an old-fashioned pub with lots of original features, a bit run-down, but I like that. I prefer that... More

Booked here for one night visiting friends for a nearby house warming. Checked Tripadviser AFTER booking and read the reviews which aren't great and had us a little worried. However, in our view it was better than Average but not Very Good - somewhere in between. The room was clean but generaly just a bit tatty. We were late back... More

I stayed for a couple of nights, and felt very welcome. The staff are friendly, and the room's are very clean. The rooms have a flat screen telly with a wide range of channels as connected with Sky. The bed's are comfortable, and I would definitely stay again. The food is nice, and has a wide range to choose from.

I am writing this review in the hope that people looking to spend their hard earned cash do so in the knowledge of what to expect from this establishment. Having paid £160 for two of these stinking dust boxes rooms 7 & 8 I was very disappointed first of all by the smell of urine which I can assure you... More
