"Easy night"
Walking the Thames path, we needed a one night stop over and considered this a suitable place - twin room, possibility of evening meal and breakfast in one location. Although Farringdon had a range of options, we weren't sure we would have enough energy to go elsewhere. Lived up to expectations - the only hassle was the 2 mile walk on a busy road from Thames to Farringdon. Read less
Likes:
Helpful, friendly staff.
Dislikes:
Ancient plumbing meant slow filling of toilet cistern, waiting for hot water to get through to the sink. Shower attachment in bath, but this had to be handheld, no shower curtain.

"No hot water and no compensation"
Have stayed twice before. Had small poor quality room first time, much better larger room the second. Unfortunately I got the smaller room again this time despite eighty pounds for the night. The radiator didn't work so just an electric heater for the room and no heating at all for the bathroom. Bathroom very outdated, cistern would only flush every third or fourth attempt. Poor fitting window. Unfortunately no hot water at all in the morning. Had to have cold shower and heat several kettles. Read less
Likes:
Pub itself is good. Food is fine. Breakfast staff helpful.
Dislikes:
Poor heating (electric heater only) and no hot water in the morning - stone cold - in February! Manager more concerned about how he'd fix than satisfying customers. Have received no apology or refund.

"It was ok"
There was meant to be parking but when I got there after a very long day, the carpark was being used for an event and I had to park in a pay and display carpark across the way. The room was very basic and cold and the bathroom (that wasn't en suite) was freezing. The shower trickled out and was not pleasant as there was no heating either. The lock to get in the room was so stiff that I hurt my fingers each time and I had a bruise there for several days. The bed was comfortable though. Read less
Likes:
The lady running it was lovely and very helpful, getting me a heater to use and bringing me a drink to my room. It was a shame because she was so nice.

"Friendly staff but dated rooms"
We stayed one night for a friend's wedding nearby. The staff were friendly, and the building definitely has character. The rooms are OK, but in ours the bathroom definitely needed updating. The shower curtain rail was hanging off the wall, the shower needed more than the usual fiddling to get to a reasonable temperature, and the toilet required some kind of secret handshake to flush properly. Breakfast was nice, but our friends waited nearly an hour for their food. Read less
Likes:
The location in the centre of town is good, and the pub food was decent enough.
Dislikes:
Everything feels like it needs a bit of a refresh, and the bathrooms need replacing.

"friendly and slightly quirky old inn with b/b"
Arrived late as driving up from Portsmouth ferry...cook made us sandwiches despite being after 9 p.m.
Our bedroom slightly small , carpet worn etc., but tea-tray, toiletries, etc. all there. Believe the other rooms are much larger. Adequate bathroom.
Freshly-cooked breakfast with good local bacon, sausage etc.plus other choices Read less
Likes:
Friendliness of staff; very characterful public rooms, good seating, plenty of thought had gone into careful modernising of parts of the hotel.
Dislikes:
Think our bedroom (no.,6) was not yet refurbished; otherwise, happy to stay again.
