Customer Rating: Mrs kurtul, Ryde Pub with rooms. Staff very pleasant In terms of value for money very good if you just need somewhere to stay and eat a pub meal which is what we needed On one of the hottest nights of the year, there was a desktop electric fan already running when we checked in our room which was invaluable during the night.
