We are delighted to have been awarded the highly acclaimed AA Breakfast Award in 2014.
The Good Hotel Guide
We are also delighted to be included in The Good Hotel Guide, one of the few truly impartial guides to hotels and B&Bs in the UK and Ireland. The Good Hotel Guide constantly monitors and reviews, based on readers’ reports backed up by independent inspection, to ensure that standards are maintained: The Guide is rewritten every year. No advertising, gifts, nor free hospitality is accepted from hotels. Only the best can appear in The Good Hotel Guide.
We are proud to have been awarded the much-coveted Editor’s Choice Award.
The Cask Marque
When displayed The Cask Marque guarantees that you’ll get a good pint of cask ale. The scheme is operated by an independent body called Cask Marque Trust which is a limited company, limited by guarantee, and a non profit making organisation. The company is run by a management committee elected by its members. The members who pay a subscription include representatives from brewers, retailers, trade bodies and consumer groups.
Pubs that join the scheme are visited unannounced by an independent assessor twice a year. In the first year they are visited twice in the first three months and in subsequent years they are visited once in the summer and once in the winter.
The assessor checks all cask ales on sale for – temperature, appearance, aroma and taste.
If all beers reach the required standard then the pub passes and it receives a plaque and framed certificate.

This award is given to outstanding hotels – as voted for by the guests that have stayed there whilst shooting.
