Positive Reviews

The food adds to a lovely stay.

The meals presented at the pub and restaurant are beautifully presented. The food is tasty and the menu gives many traditional choices so guests won't have to look elsewhere to eat or socialize. There is also a healthy ale and wine selection at the pub.

Functional outside area.

In warmer weather, the outside seating and children's play area is a great feature. Special events often take place here and can be scheduled. Overall, the garden area is functional as well as fun.

A good race stop spot.

The hotel is a great favorite with travellers visiting the local racecourse, the Lingfield Races. Inside and outside the pub, locals gather in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. If you're looking for a good race stop spot, this one is close, convenient

Since the inn and pub are so popular after the local races, the crowds there can be problematic. Both establishments are very busy on race days and service will reflect that. Also, the staff caters mostly to the locals so, on busy days, you just might be

Not for business travellers.

The inn isn't really functional or convenient for those who are travelling on business. The Wi-Fi is spotty and troublesome and there are no complimentary toiletries. Also, breakfast is served later and rooms don't have convenient necessities like glasses

More one than the other.

Here, the staff places more emphasis on the food presentation rather than the quality of the food. These is more emphasis on the restaurant aspect of the business and some hotel features, such as cleanliness in the room, suffers. Quality would improve if
