Great food, great vibe, great staff. Recommended!
The host was very accommodating and made us feel very welcome, very attentive and chatty without being intrusive. Also knew his stuff and the local area.The staff were polite, friendly and attentive. The food was amazing, especially the breakfast. The menu was a good mix of traditional with creative. We ate there both nights. The room was modest but stylish, clean and comfy and quiet given there was a bar downstairs. The atmosphere was warm with a nice mix of locals and guests. You didn't feel like you were intruding on the locals at all. Couldn't really ask for more at such a reasonable price. My only comment is the ale could have been better but then I'm a real ale snob. Would definitely recommend to anyone but especially to those looking for a cosy pub / traditional inn type vibe with amazing menu!
