We took advantage of the 3 night "special of D B & B" which at £99 each was tremendous value.
Checking in was a breeze with all the details being taken from the booking which had been made earlier in the month, so all that had to be done was to pay the balance.
This is a wonderful old 16th century coaching in and comes complete with creaking floors! which can be a bit annoying when walking around the bedroom but I think just lends itself to the character of the place. If you were very clever it was possible to work out a route across the room which avoided a lot of the creaks!
The food was excellent with such a large choice it would have been necessary to have stayed for about 1 month before having tried everything on the menu.
I don't understand the comments made by "Mozart 21" who says that it was impossible to charge drinks to the room bill, I did not encounter any problems with this. Likewise he says that breakfast was the standard self service arrangement. He must have gone elsewhere for his breakfast as the full English kept me going for the whole day with absolutely 2 of everything on the plate.
There was an allowance of £15 per person for food and if this was exceeded (or £30 for 2) then the difference was added to the final bill which was settled on departure.
I didn't see that there was a problem in understanding the final bill as Mozart did, but then I am not an accountant!
Some of the comments left on Tripadvisor are in my opinion extremely petty. It should be realised that this is an old country coaching inn and NOT a 5 Star hotel, nor does it make out to be, so come on guys be a bit fairer with your remarks.
Overall what a great place to stay and enjoy good home cooked food, and I hope we will be back sometime in the future.
