Likes:
The much-improved facilities, and always good food, which now includes a much wider range than the usual pub fare. The wine list has upgraded, too, and it's worth it.
Dislikes:
The weather is turning (colder)!

Likes:
The fact that the Carpenters Arms was situated in such delightful countryside and that it was of historical interest. Also we appreciated the helpfulness of the staff.
Dislikes:
We were unable to turn off the heating in our bedroom. The toilet was tricky to flush. We were assured that these problems would be fixed
