Lots of character & history, staff very friendly and helpful. Food good, generous, but cooked extras not cheap. Rooms well kept. Has free wi-fi for guests. Restaurant on ground level very popular in daytime and doubles as breakfast room. 15C character maintained well.

We had an overnight stay at the Abbot's Fireside. The hotel is absolutely delightful and full of character. The service was excellent and staff genuinely helpful and friendly. The host, John, was extremely welcoming and made the stay feel very relaxed. We didn't have our evening meal in the restaurant but tried another local pub, so are unable to comment... More

An amazing tudor building in a beautiful quiet village in a nice part of the world. Unbelievably friendly staff, great food, 3 ales on tap (gadds) and a lovely continental breakfast! We also took 2 bicycles with us which they allowed us to wheel through to the courtyard and lock up under cover which was nice! Strongly recommend both the... More

My husband and I stayed in August of 2013 as we were traveling for a wedding. We felt very welcomed by the staff and felt like one of the family by the end of our stay. The food was wonderful. The rooms clean. As this is an old inn the walls are thin so you can hear your neighbors or... More

My husband booked us in here as a surprise to me and we wasn't disappointed . We were made to feel so welcome from the start and nothing was to much trouble . The history of the Inn was lovely we loved all the slopping floors and tiny doors. Food was amazing we will most certainly be back and soon

Yes, was OK, just not as good as expected. Dinner was fair/reasonable, bit too stodgy, bit overpriced... Bed a bit squeaky. Floor sloping. Breakfast next morning was excellent, however. So 5***** for that!

We enjoyed excellent service and delicious food for Sunday lunch. Drinks in the bar beforehand and a relaxed meal. Nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is full of beams and character and I would recommend.
