Tradition meets warmth
The pub area is large with several rooms for finding your own quiet space to enjoy a drink, for me that's an ale and during our stay I was lucky enough to try several local and varied pints - often the Lancaster blonde or bomber is on but they did have on doombar and a few further less known breweries
Food served here was excellent, not an extensive menu but certainly a well executed one - go for the black pudding.
Breakfast was a highlight for me there was no shortage of choice with fresh fruit and pastries in abundance.
The delight of this place comes predominately from its personality, with a rich history and ties to Tolkien you'll find plenty of hobbit books on the shelves by the fire and it's right in the very pleasant Tolkien trail.
I'll not only recommend a stay here, I'll be shortly booking to go again!
