Old inn (hotel/pub) with a lot of character.
Posted Jan 22, 2016
We arrived just before check-in time (5:30 pm) on a freezing Monday in January and the place was deserted. But just as we were wondering what to do a car pulled up and the owner appeared. He was very friendly and helpful and directed us to our room which is accessed through the back. Narrow steep stairs took us up to our room which was not huge but quite cozy, and he had just had all the carpets replaced. It's an old room but had all the things you expect, TV, good sized bathroom, modern working shower. Beds were comfy enough. We then went downstairs for dinner in the pub which the owner/landlord had opened up especially for us, we were the only ones there apart from staff. So we got personal treatment! Their food selection is a better than most pubs and it was pretty good, especially the traditional English sponge pudding. We wished we had spent the previous night there.
