    “The description of the amenities close to the cottage said that there were restaurants and pubs within walking distance.”

    As far as the pubs were concerned this was accurate and they were excellent, but the only eateries were a fish and chip shop and an Italian takeaway which were ok but could hardly be described as restaurants
