“Additional Night prior to group booking”

First night stay in The Horse & Farrier very good; room, comfortable bed, good beer and food service and staff. Second night at the Salutation Ok, but cold room, difficult shower temperature control and no shower gel/shampoo provided (it's the little things you notice!). Otherwise comfortable and reasonable facilities. H&F bar area is geared up as a good restaurant, with a bar with a good range of beers etc, the Salutation is a rather sparse Bar but with less of a product range. Nevertheless I would, and will, stay again though.
