Run by: Linda Bell & Billy Sloan
Under the new ownership of cycling enthusiasts Linda and Billy, this characterful town centre pub has been completely refurbished and now has a family room which sleeps six. Good ale and hearty food, from soup and baguettes to steak and mixed grills, all home-cooked. There's a lock-up round the back, plus tool kit and the rooms are comfortable and inexpensive. The new couple are keen to encourage cycling and offer a warm welcome.
Rooms: 1F (sleeps 6), 2D/T B&B: from £15 for family room if fully occupied (£90) or £32.50 for sharing D/T. Eve meal: yes. Pk lunch: pre-order. Secure cycle lock-up. Drying facilities.
