We had coffee in this beautiful inn and sat inside as it was raining. It reminded me very much of a French brasserie with a mix of seating, from comfy chairs to wooden tables and round bar tables and stools. It was full of locals...More

We all had the steak and ale pie which tasted ok but the whole meal was only warm at best. The Duchess has real problems with not getting their meals to the table hot enough to enjoy. Meals served on cold plates are always cold...More

Good access through a wide enough door on the ground floor. If you use mobility aids you will need someone to hold the door open for you. However, the ‘accessible toilet’ is only accessible via a lift to the first floor... More
