It’s the village pub with just 3 rooms. Comfy and old but with plenty of character. Slept above the bar but wasn’t disturbed.

Old pub with comfortable rooms a great breakfast.

Although it is a very old pub, it had a nice atmosphere, the service was very good and the staff very friendly. Our double room was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our three night stay. The breakfasts were very good. As it is in the next village to our daughter we would definitely stay there again.
