On a Monday after New Year when any restauranteur would expect peace lots of people arrived looking for lunch. The most delicious Lx tail ravioli appeared. Nothing was too much bother. Time everyone went to visit

Stayed with friends for 4 nites at the Ducks Inn while on a golf trip to the area. WYSIWYG. Very accommodating, plenty of TV's in the bar to watch the golf (The Masters), very good breakfast every day and welcoming, helpful staff. Will stay again if in the area.

The entrance hall says it all, dank, scruffy and features a chipped veneer dresser/table of some sort. On the way to our room we encountered a "sticky" banister rail and two corridor sections that stank due to poor air handling. The bedroom was warm and comfortable enough although the decor and especially the bathroom needed a complete revamp. The dressing...
