Can't believe the virtually overnight downturn in the quality and ambience of this good old village local. The staff and management have always been friendly, welcoming people and in the 12+ years My partner and I have been using this pub and bed and breakfast have had slight disappointments with the food at busy times but have put it down...

very friendly and helpful hosts, spacious room en-suite with sea view, delicious dinner and breakfast, village centre within a few metres I would like to come back. By chance I joined a music session in the game room.

Stayed here two nights in a small room with uncomfortable twin beds- shower did not work properly and dangerous, switching from freezing to scorching hot! Breakfasts were terrible , and too short a window to get it. Staff were so nice though, and did their best to please. Needs a compete update.

Dropped into our local and had another great night. Beer is good, landlord is great and the social is amazing. There is a great outside seating area giving a glimpse back into the village and although we didn't eat the food looked good. Thoroughly recommend it.

We stayed here for a three night weekend in a good size room that was clean and comfortable but could do with a little tidying up like paintwork around windows and carpet a bit threadbare in places. Everyone was friendly and helpful, breakfast cooked fresh, only small problem it is served between 08.30 and 09.00 would like to see more...

The hotel has a large carpark and plenty of space for eating and drinking both indoors and outside in an enclosed garden area. (There's even a covered outside area for those who need to smoke)! Rooms are clean and basic, but spacious, with good...

Some reviews here are a little mixed but we stopped last night on our way back to the holiday cottage in Exmoor. We sat in the conservatory and it was quite quiet when we arrived. The place looked clean and well kept and the menu had enough variety to include vegetarian. The food was good and reasonably priced; we were...
