We had friends from the States over and they booked their accommodation with the Rowbarge Hotel. We had lunch here and the menu they had had lots to choose from. Very friendly service and the food was delicious we will be back.

Absolutely disgusting behavior from staff obviously cant cope with the small footfall! The landlady appeared quite grubby and would not recommend anyone coming to this place!

We are sorry to have to say this review is totally 'off target'. Our prices are not as expensive as quoted, and we wonder as to the authenticity of the review.
