Had a lovely meal here on the 8th June. Huge choice which suited everyone. Staff very helpful and attentive. Couldn't fault anything. Brought a birthday cake with us and there was no issue with this. Many thanks to all.

Stayed here for one night on a golfing break and was treated to friendly, down to earth service from Alan and the rest of the staff. The bar/restuarant has great atmosphere, the food combined quality and quantity plus there was a good selection of malt whiskies.

A friend booked the Inn on our behalf as we live in Essex. Although it was a Monday evening, the main restaurant was closed though there was the full menu available in the bar area. We all had different items off the menu. I had a most tasty rib eyed steak that was cooked to perfection. There was no complaints... More

Went for a meal this afternoon with some friends and our kids. Although the hotel is in a lovely location and we were welcomed on our arrival, we found the overall experience a bit of a let down.

This was a group booking. On arrival we found that one couple had been booked in elsewhere because the hotel wa overbooked but this was paid for by the owner and he had organised transport to and from the hotel whenever the people wished.
