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.

The other family room was one very large room. The Double room is quite compact but comfortable. This is a very old building with low doorways and uneven floor's which add's... More

Having read all other reviews I feel disloyal! The service was excellent and we witnessed very picky guests at breakfast. We were in the area to visit old friends. The room was very authentic but the bed was terrible. Good shower and lovely white towels. Lots of toiletries. The breakfast included was for a buffet we had to pay extra... More

We stayed just for one night and were very impressed by the hospitality of the owner and staff, the quality of the accommodation and the beautiful old building. The place was spotless, nice white bed linen and soft towels in the bedroom and a very generous hospitality tray. The price of the room (which included a Continental breakfast, compared very... More
