I enjoyed the days I stayed there. Very cozy hotel that oozes history. The bedroom floor is probably the most uneven I've seen, but the room was very cozy and clean. The service at the hotel was very good - and the restaurant provided high quality food (And you were satiated after a meal).

We stopped off for Supper after a long, busy day at the NEC. We had the most delicious meals; they were served with a smile, came very quickly and were piping hot. The Venison is highly recommended. We ate in the Bar which was lively for a Sunday night without being busy. Décor is in keeping with the Olde World...

We met up with some friends just after Christmas. As ever we had a great welcome to the hotel. Rooms are well maintained, although as it is a very old place, some of the climbs to the room were very steep, but this adds to the character. There is a very lively public bar at the front of the hotel,...

stayed here for 1 night d.b.b. on 29th December for the 2nd time. The welcome was friendly and the room lovely & cosy with lashings of hot water. We had supper included and it was fab, as was the breakfast. The location is in the centre of the quaint little town and well worth a visit.

Booked a table for lunch Christmas Eve and chose the two course special. The food was well cooked and presented and what I consider good value for the quality. The young waiting staff made the the experience even better. As I live locally I will definatly use it more often and recommend it to all.
