Tiny bathroom, but that is a minor thing for us-could be a problem for tall people or larger sized ones! The evening meals took a long time to arrive on the second night, but I suspect that might be due to chef who is doing his/her utmost to reach the highest standards, which he/she did indeed.
Location in the Conservation village of Shincliffe, we always look for somewhere quiet and in pleasant surroundings, and this old pub fitted the bill well. The room was large with plenty of storage, the staff were friendly and efficient, the bar and restaurant areas were comfortable with a choice of local real ales. The food was excellent and beautifully presented, gourmet food at pub grub prices, well done!
