Positive Reviews

Delicious food

It should come as no surprise that a place that prepares home-cooked meals would have some great reviews of the food but guests that are taken aback by the dated look of the place are very impressed by the food. They say that the portions are huge, and everything is tasty.

Good atmosphere in the pub

This is very much a local pub and from the moment that you walk through the door, you'll find that you are welcomed like a long lost friend. The people here are super friendly, and they love to chat with the guests.

Spotless throughout

Although it's starting to look a little rough around the edges, many of the guests that have stayed here are happy with the cleanliness of the place. They say that not only are the rooms spotless but so too are the public areas.

Negative Reviews

Poor Wi-Fi signal

It's strange that at such a small place the guests would have to complain about the Wi-Fi signal. It's not great, so if you depend on a connection to the internet for work, it would be best to make alternative plans.

Very basic rooms

The rooms while tidy are quite basic. You won't find too many amenities in there, and the ones that are available seem to be quite old. Some guests found that their TV had problems or that the kettle looked very old.

Getting a little dated

This place is quite homely, but the décor is starting to look old and worn. The bar is a nice place to sit and have a drink, but there are definite improvements that could be made such as new carpets and replacing some of the furniture.
