Fine dining is long gone, the building is superb but the food is downmarket. Owned by Old English Inns.

This pub became a Marco Pierre White Wheelers Restaurant about a year or so ago. The service is excellent and the staff professional and friendly. The food is extremely good and you can chose between a supper of a fish pie and a pint or from a very good a la carte three course menu. It is a restaurant rather than a pint but it is a fabulous meal out.

Used to be a great pub for bar billiards, sadly none now. Probably gone downhill anyway with Jordan living near by.............

Went there for lunch a couple of weeks ago having never been there before. The staff were friendly and attentive, the beer was well kept and the food was excellent.

It was a bit expensive but probably worth the cost.

Well worth another visit.

We ( 2 adulds 2 children) stayed here for 2 days in may 2008, in room 5. As we were a part of a wedding party of approx 6 rooms we were given a discount. but i was told to stay here was 99 per night.

The hotel had a musty smell, it was very hot and this could of been damp of an old building drying.

The room was clean but needed a lick of paint, the bathroom was in need of renovation, with tile grout missing and the units showing thier age. The hallways were the same. Our room was so hot we had to open the windows and suffered from road traffic noise all night, so bad at 1 point my daughter ran screaming with fright to our bed as a lorry bounced across the mini-roundabout outside our window.

The restaurant was nice. The breakfast was small and the sausage was pink inside even though we waited 20 mins for it. The staff spent little time with us.

Outside the gardens were large and pretty but the sight of dog mess (owners kept a dog there) on the lawn from Thursday until Saturday was off putting.

Room 12 had no shower curtain And the shower did not work. The whole group talked about the rooms in 1 way or another and most had negative points. Most of all, that we all went home with bites that weekend, but as we travelled to another hotel for the wedding, we can not say for sure the bites were from this hotel...apart from the fact that no one from the other hotel has any bites.

OH and if you want a breakfast on the weekend, take extra money...breakfast is not include at weekends....strange.

When my cousin booked our room...a few months prior he told them about our 2 kids. We were on a budget that weekend so imagine our surprise when we were Charged an extra 40 for the 2 campbeds in the room.

So would i stay here again...

Would i recommend it....

If this hotel were in Blackpool you would get better for 18 a night.

Excellent beer, has Harvey's plus one or two guest ales. Good pub food, large portions resonably priced. Recent makeover has made a real difference to the way the place feels.

Went for a bite last night, Kitchen has now re-opened after refurbishment. Food was excellent pub fare, nothing fancy but well cooked.Beer also very good, Harvey's top notch.

Hmm. Turned up to meet a friend on a Tuesday evening.

Kitchens were closed and the atmosphere was reminiscent of a morgue! Bar staff spent more time on other jobs than behind the bar. Beer indifferent

Have stayed here and really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean comfortable and cheaper than a travelodge especially considering the enormous breakfast offered. The cask beers were well kept, Harveys Best and guest beers. Cosy bars, food reasonably priced with large portions. Garden spacious and well kept, obviously not aimed at small children, no play equipment etc, but to me that was a plus

I stayed here recently and would not recommend it to anyone. Our room was overpriced and undercleaned, as well as being absolutely boiling - a problem echoed by other guests. The fans provided in the rooms did not work - well, at least in ours and the rooms of two other guests. Whoever owns this pub should seriously take a look at the rooms and the pricing policy. This is no more than a glorified B&B charging hotel prices.

Actually Jordan and Pete have moved away, so no danger of propping up the bar with them. Nice pub/hotel, good pub grub, changing guest ales, cellar is well kept, sells Harveys. Brilliant atmosphere, especially on a busy friday night

Lovely little pub, great food and ales, nice little garden, occaisonal glimpses of Jordan (not the country). Does have a tendency to close for the afternoon, beware.

Nice little country pub, good food and drink! Going to be even better now Jordan the busty model has moved in up the road!
