    Breakfast was good

    Staff very friendly and made to feel welcome

    The room was very poor and was very expensive for the facilities offered.Used to stay here years ago and thought the standards would have remained high especially because of the price.

    Excellent traditional guest house. Rooms above an inn. Recommended to those wanting to experience staying at a real English pub.

    Excellent staff, well mannered and attentive.

    Room size a little cramped. Bathroom good, but again very cramped.TV Remote not working, but no complaint made at the time as we were not too bothered about watching it.

    It's really nice to find a pub that still has it's original character and hasn't been taken over by a big chain and 'standardised'. I was literally just using it as a bed for the night, but should I need to visit tha area again, I would definitely stay at the Dog and sample some of their fab range of beers. The landlord was really friendly and welcoming, and was happy to cook me whatever I wanted for breakfast - which was yum!

    Breakfast was acceptable and a good selection of real ales in the bar

    The whole gambit of the room, small, shower dirty, shower door falling off, carpets stained and bedsprings protruding. I don't see how the hotel had a recommendation from the English Tourist Board.

    Good

    The landlord was exceptionally pleasant, friendly and helpful as were all other staff I encountered. The breakfasts were filling and tasty.

    The single room was directly above the outside smoking area, and consequently was very noisy and smelled of smoke, into the early hours of the morning on occasions.

    Simple and cheap Inn over a jolly pub, with a friendly owner, and in a little town close to Stansted Airport.

    The basic furnishings and the real tiny bathroom
