Customer Reviews
Overall Rating 4.5
based on 8 reviews.
Customer Rating: Mrs Brand, Burgess Hill Lovely location, pub good and staff excellent. Rooms tired and in need of redecoration and make over.

Customer Rating: Mrs Johnstone, Lincoln Decor was a little 'tired' but considering that it is a well used and busy place it wasn't surprising. Very clean and comfy bed and great shower so no complaints there. Staff were very helpful and friendly, food was excellent. Loved the history of the place, would certainly stay again, loved it.

Customer Rating: Ms TAYLOR, Ledbury

Customer Rating: Mr Kentish, Bexleyheath A perfect location with excellent hospitality. Our second visit.

Customer Rating: Mr Witts, Loughborough There is no separate restaurant. so can be quite noisy in the bar whilst eating. Menu selection could be better.
