8/10 Very good

We were able to check-in early. The staff were all polite and helpful. The room was great overall, lots of character and very nice ensuite. We ate in the pub in the evening, nice meal and generous portion! Likewise, a great breakfast in the morning! My only 2 minor issues were that although lovely, one of the old windows did not close. It didn't make the room too cold for us, but it does mean that it can be noisy as people come and go from the pub. Be aware if you are a light sleeper!! My other slight niggle was nowhere in the bathroom to put things like toothbrush etc. Sink is large, no room round that for anything. Tiny shelf over loo, which fitted almost nothing!! Maybe a bigger one would be more practical??! Overall however, a lovely stay and don't be put off!
