This place used to be remarkably good, then it became less so. Now it is less so still. I wouldn't travel to visit but if you're in the area it's ok.

What a lovely place for a cosy evening meal. The team in the hotel were so friendly and attentive. The meal was beautifully cooked, to our specifications, and was a delight. We will certainly visit again when next in the area. Loads of parking. We were in accommodation just across the county border in Somerset - it was well worth... More

Eight of us locals dropped in for a dinner and were greeted with a warm welcome. Several of us ordered the smoked haddock mousse starter which had an odd after-taste. The house replaced the dishes immediately and did not charge us for any of the starter course. The liver pate was amazing as were the balsamic figs in whipped blue... More

Great place for a Sunday Roast, food cooked to a high standard and service good. Not a massive menu choice which makes it far easier to choose.
