Legitimately exceptional. The pub was quite busy and seemed even understaffed, but as soon as we mentioned we were staying the night, a woman stopped what she was doing to help us out, explain everything, and answer several questions. She was very friendly and even funny. The room was good. Decent size, nice bed, and plenty of pillows. The good quality hot chocolate and biscuits were a nice addition. We could hear music into the night, but it surprisingly wasn't too loud in our particular room, and I couldn't feel the bass - it didn't interrupt our attempts to sleep at all. The young woman in the morning let us know, when we were having trouble deciding, that we could mix and match any items from the menu. That was very generous and the food was great in addition to simply being included in the price. She seemed to be serving and cleaning up alone, plus making the coffee. Maybe the food, too? Yet she had total patience.
