Went for the Cheltenham Festival and will definetly be going back! The rooms were really reasonably priced and also the mini bus which shuttled us back and forth each day! So convienient! Rooms were gorgeous and immaculate! Bed is huuuuge!! The staff are good craic and make u feel so welcome! Ate both nights in the pub and food was amazing and very reasonable for the massive portions you get. Honestly cannot fault the place and it has something special about it that will make u keep going back! Cant’t wait to go again!

This is quite a unique place- the bar area is very welcoming and the charming restaurant is in several parts, the pub being built on a slope each room is at a different level, and one has a well in it. The food is amazing and deserving of it’s awards- especially the gastro pies (I am not easy to fill up but these did!). If you are going as a couple do yourselves a favour and order different pies each, then share as it is worth tasting different ones! It was also nice to see Abbott Ale and Old Speckled Hen on tap. The bed was huge (I could have sneaked another woman in whilst my wife was asleep but decided not to!) and had two duvets to make it warm- and the facilities were good- the rooms were in a charming little courtyard area which was very well looked after, and everywhere you look there were things to see, read etc.- little touches like the lovely open fire which was frequently attended, and landlord (who is Irish) putting Irish jokes on the wall…! The local area had a lot to do, especially if you are an outdoors type like us, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was a tad cold in this un-seasonable weather but I am sure had we have been bothered to mention it the staff would have immediately helped- they are like that (especially the nice girl behind the bar who seemed very helpful, unlike a lot of staff in other places nowadays!). Will we go back? Yes.
