THE LOOK AND FEEL
This is very much a traditional English pub - homely with dark brown traditional furniture, and touches like green wood-panelled walls and old fireplaces with exposed brick surrounds.
Being essentially a pub with rooms, there aren't many extra facilities as such, you're essentially staying for the traditional pub atmosphere and central location.
