We stayed for two nights in room 1. It has a sea view through a large bay window and was amazingly quiet. The room was specious and clean although the décor was a little tired. Free wifi was secure and so password protected which we appreciated. The inn has a large car park.
Owners and staff were all friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was ok but not outstanding; nonetheless a point in its favour was that cooked orders were individually prepared rather than laid out on a buffet.
There is no catering on Sunday evenings. However we were directed to a few nearby restaurants. On the following evening we dined at the inn. The menu is packed with honest fresh local food. The dining areas were packed so service was understandably slow. Also, some items on the menu were sold out but we still enjoyed our meals which were generous portions of good quality pub food.
There are two bars with a central servery. The back bar tends to be for locals, so we chose to sit in either the front one or the adjacent conservatory. A reasonable selection of mid-range wines was offered. Three local real ales were available as the owner has a well-deserved Cask Marque accreditation. I chose to drink Otter Bitter which was in excellent form.
All things considered we found The Village Inn to be a well-run pub, offering bed and breakfast, lunches and dinners. But don’t expect the Ritz!
