Very disappointing breakfast and thus overpriced

Reviewed 5 june, 2022

After two years of sporadic business you would really think that hospitality businesses would make more of an effort. Greeting was friendly and I was taken up to room 5 which is a large, family room that would certainly have been big enough for a couple and two young children. Having said that, the room was next to the roof extractor so the only quiet hours were from about 1am until a little before 6. So sleep is difficult. The room was basically clean, if a bit tatty with a carpet in need of a good clean - and the bed linen of low quality. Shower was adequate. The real disappointment was breakfast. I was invited to help myself to the “continental”, which was basically yesterday’s afternoon tea of scones and lemon cake, with a few yogurts and a melon boat. Very lightly toasted bread, of dubious freshness, was brought out to go with the individual plastic pots of marmalade. I declined tea or coffee and asked for hot water and lemon but the hot water was undrinkable. I’m guessing from a badly scaled kettle. Leaving having touched very little I was asked if all was OK and I mentioned that I had been expecting a proper breakfast, given I had paid £90 for a room over a pub in a small village. I was told that a cooked breakfast was £5 extra and that I needed to order it when I checked in. I said I hadn’t been offered that and was told that the woman’s daughter had booked me in, not her. So that was that.


Best breakfast!

We stayed as a quick overnighter for my son’s visit to university. Arrived late and tired after an 8 hour drive. Woke the next morning to an amazing breakfast! Much needed scran before another long day.

I was due to stay for two nights. I left the next morning. It seems the pub was taken over in October and perhaps not the same standard as before. When I arrived at 10 I was asked if I wanted well I paid for it! He said he'd let his chef know (at 10.20pm the night before!). Next morning turned up for breakfast to be told no chef, so cereal only. I suspect it was not worth paying a chef to come in and cook for 1 person. However, I may have coped with this if the room wasn't filthy. There was dust over the bedside cabinets and window sills. The window overlooking the main road did not shut properly due to the latch sitting on the sill and not affixed to the window. The bathroom clearly had not been cleaned. There was blood stains and bloody tissue on the toilet along with urine stains and pubic hairs. See photos (but not if squeamish). I'm not fussy, and didn't expect luxury, but now of all times, I expect cleanliness. The signs on the wall in the hallway asking to use the hand sanitiser here were also interesting, since there were no hand sanitisers to be seen. The bed was comfortable. I woke early to the sound of lorries driving past the rickety window.

On arrival shown to room and told that private bathroom was the other end of the corridor, not good if you need to use the toilet in the middle of the night. Discovered that the room bin had not been emptied and there was a used lateral flow test in it, clearly see it was negative, there was no tv remote either. Bin was changed and remote taken from another room and the blame attached to the cleaner. the bed linen was not fresh and clearly had not been changed since the last guests had used the room. The shower was cold and you needed to be a safe cracker to get the dial in the right spot to get a dribble of hot water. We had booked two nights but only stayed the one and sought accommodation elsewhere. A blessing was that the evening meal and full English breakfast we had was very good and if you are looking for a good hearty, home cooked type meal give this place a try, mother will look after you. Sorry mother you are a lovely host and awesome cook but you need to ditch the clown from Stoke.

Just had the most amazing meal in The King's Head. Proper home cooked food like Mum use to make. Even the chips were hand peeled and cut. The Cornish stew is an absolute must. Can't recommend enough. Well done Darren and his team.
