"Booked to stay as was dining at a nearby restaurant. The pub and the rooms were very clean and perfectly finished. Room included Sky to, teas and coffee, water, very large room and bathroom with fluffy towels. On checking in we were advised that the pub had been booked for two parties that night, one with a band and the other with a DJ. We were advised that the party would be finished by 11.30, so not a problem as we weren't due back till just after midnight. On returning the band had finished, but the DJ had not, the bar was also full of party goers. The noise from the pub echoed into the rooms above till 1.00, you could hear and feeling the base, the singing and the laughter. The at 1.30 the staff started to put the furniture all back into place. Once again disturbing the rooms above. The bathroom extract fans rattled through the night, added with the busy road outside made for a very poor nights sleep in a very comfortable room. The bar staff had returned by 8.00 am making the place ready for breakfast, therefore once again could be heard. Breakfast the next morning was good, a traditional full English, but no other hot choice, only cereals or pastry. The water for tea was lukewarm and the overall service did not reflect the setting. On the whole, good room, very noisy, poor service and overpriced. "
"Stayed in the suite. Modern, quirky and large, well modernised and comfortable if a little noisy from the road. But after a bottle of great local Pinot noir I couldn’t hear much! Food pretty good I had hake perfectly cooked and my wife had great moules. The bar is comfortable and the staff pleasant and attentive. The home grown wines especially that Pinot Noir are really good. Let down badly by an entirely DIY continental breakfast. Can’t complain about most of the food left out for breakfast but the breakfast experience is so far behind the quality of the rest of the inn. I want service in a hotel environment and one of the pleasures of being away from home is the indulgence of full cooked breakfast. We won’t return to stay but as a pub it’s really good. "
"I just stayed for one night with my two daughters. The bedrooms are absolutely lovely, the pub was lively on a Sunday afternoon, and we enjoyed our pizzas that night. The staff were charming, friendly and helpful. We were left a great continental breakfast on the Monday morning. The rooms and food were reasonably priced, though the wine was quite a bit more than we paid in Hush Heath winery. However, the staff kindly let us drink the bottle we had bought at Hush Heath, downstairs in the pub with our pizzas."
