We stayed two nights in one of the rooms behind the hotel; warm and cosy, everything we needed. We ate in the restaurant one night and had delicious burgers with good local wine and lovely service. On the second night we were invited in to the bar for a nightcap despite it officially being closed that night, and enjoyed great hospitality from the owners. Would recommend staying here.

Incredibly slow and unprofessional service. Group of 13, asked to pre-order our mains 2 days prior, and still had to wait over an hour for service. Wait staff very inexperienced and untrained. Most of the food, when it arrived, was below average. The exception was the pork belly. Over-priced and unprofessional
