If you want peace & quiet then this site is not for you.Children screaming all day long with rowdy swearing adults drinking & playing loud music till 1am.Told someone about this but was ignored.Went to empty chem toilet but no signage for it so had to hunt management down in full bar who couldn't care less & was told to empty in toilets.Wont be returning.

Best showed and loos on our whole trip. Super clean and spacious with lashings of hot water almost too hot!

Lovely food in the evening at the pub with huge portions and child friendly restaurant

Only negative to this was it took a few adjustments to get the van level which hubby is a stickler for.

Otherwise a super place to stop for the night to rest and eat well.

We were here yesterday 17/06/18..with friends to celebrate the big birthday in his favourite pub.. We had a wonderful buffet, including veggie and vegan options which were different and very much appreciated. Although we had 5dogs we were made to feel welcome. All of the staff were lovely and helpful and I can thoroughly recommend the Ancient Briton.. Thankyou.
The only thing that marred the event was a very unpleasant older local at the bar in long shorts, who apparently objected to having a dog near him and made that clear in a very nasty way. He needs help.
