Good Hotel Guide Review
Opposite the parish church in a pretty village on the Aln estuary, this traditional 18th-century coaching inn is ‘clearly a popular local watering hole’. The wood-panelled bar entices with real ales and beers from regional artisan brewers; locally sourced, ‘reasonably priced’ pub fare (perhaps baked goat’s cheese; steak and ale pie, home-made chips) is served by ‘friendly’ staff. ‘Tasteful, well-appointed’ first-floor bedrooms have modern oak furniture, a ‘very comfortable’ bed, a smart bathroom. Along with ‘an elementary buffet’, breakfast, ordered the night before, delivers ‘trencher portions of beautifully cooked scrambled eggs and good toast’. A sheltered beer garden takes in scenic views over the water.
