5-star ~ Neil C ~ April 2018

“We had an overnight stay here in the four poster room. Lovely clean and spacious room. The evening meal was excellent with a lot of choices. Food was very tasty and generously portioned, and piping hot. The full English breakfast was superb as well. I must say they the staff were very polite and helpful too. I would recommend a visit to The Old Ram, if not to stay at least to enjoy a very good and great value meal. Thanks to all the lovely staff too.”
