    Very poor NYE experience, with cold shower!

    Bought as a Christmas gift, for NYE stay, we arrived & was shown to the top, back of building small room, which didn’t really warrant the £80 price tag. Went to take a shower, & after following the specific instructions to achieve a hot shower, 20mins on, still no hot or even lukewarm water. After discussing with 2 members of staff, the best offer was 1/2 price room, bottle of bubbly with meal & use of communal shower. Unfortunately trying to achieve a mix of warm water in the communal shower appeared to be impossible! It was either freezing cold or scalding hot with nothing in between! The food served downstairs is very good, as a consulation, just unfortunately the hotel room didn’t reach the same standard!😒

    A box with no view

    Tiny box room with no bathroom we had to share bathroom the entire time in the shower was spent constantly adjusting taps! the radiator in room was making loud annyoing noises all night, And bed is horrible was on a dodgy angle so felt like a was sleeping on a hill, The room had no windows such a shame as location is lush and bar is lovely.

    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    Very central but with limited disc parking on site. Alternative free parking by Wilco nearby. Friendly staff, good bar & restaurant with wide choice of drinks & generous portions of tasty pub food. Accommodation high up - no lift. Stayed in quirky attic room with good TV, tea/coffee making, welcome biscuits but somewhat basic bed and shower facilities.

    Overnight stay

    The tavern is very rustic and quaint. Fantastic atmosphere and the food was the best of our two week trip around the UK. The only issue was that we had no hot water due to a malfunction with the boiler as I understand. Harry was our host and he was awesome!
