Positive Reviews

Spotless rooms with extra touches

Guests rate the standard of accommodation provided next to this country pub as excellent. The rooms are consistently described as spotless and nicely presented. Guests also appreciate extra details such as board games for the kids.

Delicious food served on site

The quality of the food at this country pub is a big hit, with guests describing the meals here as fresh, tasty, and reasonably priced.

Friendly and welcoming staff

Despite a few grumbles, guests are typically impressed with the standard of service offered at the pub, describing the staff as being friendly and welcoming throughout their stay.

Negative Reviews

Traffic noise can be a problem

Although the accommodation here benefits from double glazing, the accommodation is so close to the A90 that traffic noise can be heard in the rooms regardless. Earplugs are likely to be a wise addition to a packing list.

Service at breakfast can be slow

While finding the staff friendly and welcoming, guests also report that service can be a little on the slow side. This seems to be particularly the case during the breakfast service. Guests report fairly lengthy waits for their meal, even after requesting that breakfast is served at a specific time.
