Chose a 3 hour drive home rather than staying another night

We had driven over to Shropshire for a friends wedding and upon arriving after our 3 hour drive we checked into our room and found it very unclean, spiders were in the room and there was mould/damp in places.

The bathroom looked like something from a SAW movie, the shower is essentially a wet room and after using it the whole floor became sticky, walking on it in bare feet left me feeling like I needed another shower and walking on it in socks meant I had to change them every time I went into the bathroom. During the night I had also been bitten on my legs by god knows what. We decided to ask for a refund for our second night and the manager completely ignored us whilst in earshot of our conversation with the waitress, this was topped off by the fact that the waitress then came over 10 minutes later with our refund in cash, without the manager even acknowledging us or asking if everything was ok. To summarise, we chose to not drink for the whole day at a wedding and drive the 3 hour drive home on the night instead of staying here for another night.

Lovely surroundings, Lovely staff, Great Food, Clean Rooms.

Basic Accomodation But Good Value, Friendly and Helpful Staff, Good Food

Basic accomodation but good value.

Our small double room and shared bathroom facilities were well overdue a makeover but the bed was comfortable and the staff genuinely welcoming and very helpful. Really good value pub food with a varied menu, popular with locals and visitors. Our dog was allowed for a small fee and it was understandable that our meals had to be taken in the "pool" room rather than the main eating areas as we had the dog with us. A program of redecoration would make this place great.

Bedroom refurb due!

My wife and I really liked this place.

Very friendly service, excellent food, though both let down considerably by the quality of the bedroom. The bedroom reminded us of those £5 per night seaside B&B's you could get in the '70's. Such a shame. Hope the owners get around to a refurb shortly. This was fine for a single night whilst passing through, and the food and service was very good, but you should put aside any thought of the accommodation being more that just about functional.

Late arrival no problem. Really helpful smily staff. rooms clean but dated. Great breakfast included

The rooms were old fashioned but quirky.

New landlady recently taken over and will take this quirky Pub / hotel into the future. Really friendly staff very helpful. Upgraded to en suite which was nice. Rooms dated and in need of a bit of attention but very clean. A few too many colours and a hotchpotch of pictures in the room and could have taken half the away and looked better. Floral bedspreads. Plain would be better. Brown towels. A bit of thought and a visit by the landlady to a modern hotel or viewing of Hotel Inspector with Alexii Politzie TV programme would be highly recommended. She was great and we wish her all the luck in her new venture. Bill Swann

Klein maar fijn.

Fantastisch full English breakfast.

Heerlijke maaltijden en gezellige bar. Vriendelijk personeel en grandioze landlady. De kamers waren klein, maar volledig ingericht. Kleine douche. Alles was zeer schoon. Echte min punten waren er niet. Je moet er wel rekening mee houden dat je in een 16e eeuws pand logeert.
