    Cool authentic inn with cozy rooms that were clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed breakfast and dinner at the inn. It's a little out of the way but worth the extra travel time.

    The room was comfortable; great beds, and an ensuite bathroom. The breakfast was exceptional - lots of it, and excellent quality. Great choice from a menu. The bar had a good selection of real ales, all very well kept. The inn has a farm...
