birthday stay at the fishermans cot

our stay was all we hoped for the area was peaceful and the river running by the restaurant windows made the evening meal and was a refreshing start of the day when going into breakfast.

The food was excellent and staff was very cheerful and helpful would definitely stay again

A little more thought next time

After travelling for 6 hours on a fogbound night and arriving at 9:20pm, I was greeted by 'I'm sorry we stopped serving food at 9pm'.

My room was tidy and clean, but having to travel a further 10 mile round trip for a take-away was not what I really eanted to do. The staff were very plesant and breakfast was good.
