Took an email and 2 phone calls over a period of 2 days to confirm our booking for the campsite. Wanted to stay here as on our cycle route. Not very busy on the site which was a relief as the one toilet and tired shower would not be enough with more people on site. Shower was lovely and hot...

Visited here for a light lunch just after mother's day, and disappointed with the overall service. One person behind the bar serving drinks, taking orders and serving the food. (She needs a medal) They had only one larger, no lime juice or cider and had run out of most drinks the day before. Service from the loan member of staff...

Thank you for taking the time to review your meal earlier this week. We are very sorry to learn that you were disappointed with the overall experience and your feeling that you did not receive the level of service which we strive to give at all times. In our defence we had been extremely busy on Mother's Day, the previous...

What a little treasure.... We came... we stayed... we ate.... we drank and we were entertained as well. We were made very welcome right from the start. Even our little four legged Meggy Moo was welcomed and not left out. The room had character and was clean. We were in room 2 and the only downside was the tiny window...

My daughter and I had a fabulous three course meal which cost so little for the fantastic quality, because we used my taste card which offers half price across all courses. The food was delicious and beautifully served and the atmosphere was very pleasant and restful. My little dachshund was allowed into the restaurant and was even given a little...

This was our second visit with friends for lunch after a gap of several years. It was all that we remembered; the pub itself is a lovely traditional English country pub in a delightful setting. My husband ordered tempura battered haddock with chips and I had a carbonara pasta dish. Both were extremely good and my husband was impressed by...

This the first time I have written a review but because this place was so awful I felt I needed to take the time to write to stop anybody else wasting their time and money. From beginning to end our one night stay in the so called camping field was a disaster.The landlord is rude and immature with no knowledge...

We camped here for one night, on a well kept site. The pub was warm and cosy and the landlord was very friendly and helpful and so was the waitress. There's a good selection of food available on the menu and on the specials board. We had a starter and a main and it was all lovely. I enjoyed the...

Stayed at the True Lovers Knot for four nights over the Christmas period. Lovely room, well presented and very friendly and attentive landlord. Breakfast was very hearty and filled the plate! Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to others

A great place to say especially if you like the rustic charm of quaint British pubs. A nice warm and comfortable room with shower that i really liked. All the staff are really friendly and helpful and i think i have found a little gem. Thanks for a great stay
