Knighton 2015

Hi everybody,

Have found that if we book early there are rooms available for the Horse & Jockey at Knighton. Following last years poor performance of the George & Dragon we are trying to sort a different B&B and place to eat. The Horse & Jockey is more expensive; £80 for a double room and £75 for two sharing a twin, but the standard and level of comfort should be better. I will still be booking rooms at the other B&Bs, The Kinnersley and Penny's. The evening meal will be at Horse & Jockey.

I need to gauge peoples thoughts on this, and get an idea of how many may come, and if the extra cost for better accommodation is what people want. Cheaper B&Bs will still be available. Please post in reply to this message.

John.

If it helps, the reviews on Tripadvisor are fairly positive.

Lisa, Thomas and I are interested in the Horse and Jockey. Please put our names down. We will bring a travel cot for Thomas.

Is it worth changing though because of one bad year when previous visits have been good !!

Yes John put us down for the Horse and Jockey please. As you know we researched it for last year but it was fully booked. The rooms look very comfortable and the pub is well reviewed. Ann and Dave.

Forgot to mention a date. It will be the 24th October, the night the clocks change.

Neil, the George & Dragon have been penny pinching for years now, with no gratitude for the business that we have given them at a quiet time of the year, and this year they were pretty rude. Also they are only a few quid cheaper than the Horse & Jockey.
