Stayed one night over xmas, Fantastic staff, great food and a good range of beers. Room was excellent. Must say John who booked us in and run the bar was excellent, nothing to much trouble for him. Will be back.

I stayed for one night as I was working in the area, and although this is not a luxury hotel, as a stop over it is really very good. The room was immaculate and well appointed, and the bathroom was spotlessly clean, with a large supply of fluffy towels. Breakfast was very good - I will be back !!

Met up with a pal here who I hadn't seen for many years. We needed somewhere equi-distant from our locations with a decent bar and good food. We found it. The bar area was cosy and warm. A good selection of beer and the menu was good and very affordable. We had a great evening.

Having only landed from a flight from Athens a few hours before we booked in, it was lovely to check in with no fuss, go to a nice quiet clean room and sink into a comfy bed. And after a quality sleep.... a quality breakfast. I would definitely recommend.

Saturday night sleepover so we could enjoy a party at the same venue. On arrival we received a warm welcome from both staff and locals. We didn't expect a luxury bedroom with all the trimmings, but for the money we paid our room was more than comfortable and spotlessly clean. Full english breakfast was lush and reasonably priced.

We stayed here last night as we were at a wedding at Downham Hall Country Hotel. Just a short journey by a local taxi firm to the venue. We had a nice room with en suite. It was clean and all you needed for a short stay. Ironing board, iron, hair drier and fan if it turned too warm. Lovely...

We popped in here for lunch on a whim and we were not disappointed. Inside it is very quaint and cosy. An old fashioned village pub with a simple outline. It was quiet and has some friendly locals in the bar area who even engaged with my son. The menu was simple and honest food. The portions were. Good size...
