Bland food disguised by piping hot chips . Everything was tasteless no flavour. Ask for fillet steak medium well done . Came to table still alive gristle,fat and cold. Not a good steak at all . Best part was starters ! It all very much reminded me of a little chef in the rural beautiful Ayno. Such a shame even... More

Was due to stay one night B&B but got delayed the following day so ended up booking for a second night. Staff always helpful and friendly and gave a warm welcome. The room the first night was fantastic. It was massive with large very comfortable bed with desk, chair and arm chairs. The second night the room was smaller and... More

Didn't stay over so can not comment on accomadation. My husband and I went for a Valentine's dinner that we saw advertised in the local paper. We received a warm welcome and enjoyed our complimentary champagne in the bar before being shown to our table. The food was very good and the service throughout the meal was good although as...

We came here to eat on Sunday evening...the place was virtually empty, which we could not understand given the quality of the food. They have a good choice of food to eat, with an impressive 2 for £18 or 3 for £23 deal on the courses. The food was delicious, served promptly, with a good choice of drinks to accompany... More

Invited at wedding next door, this hotel had been recommended to us. The restaurant has a nice choice of wines and attractive menu. The personel is friendly and customer oriented. Please avoir the rooms: not only the walls are very thin and you hear every conversation next door, but the mattress was a pure disaster. It was probably has old... More

The Cartwright Hotel has recently has a full refurbishment - all new fittings incl top quality beds. Thanks for the positive comments and reading between the lines I think the rate is your biggest beef! Saturday only wedding bookings are a challenge as we are unable to sell the Friday night to weekender guests. Hence the premium rate. The Cartwright... More

Visited on a voucher offer which I've had mixed experiences with, however my view has now changed! The hotel is situated in a very pretty village. On arrival..welcoming, friendly staff who couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. Very comfortable clean room, excellent meal in the restaurant..helpful advice on menu and delicious Fillet Rossini. Thanks..will be back.

Having frequented this establishment, old and new for over 20 years all I can say to Janet G is that she has not given the new manager a chance. Having met Johnny I find him an approachable and friendly man with many good ideas. He has taken time to speak to locals and customers and I find him enthusiastic in... More

Just had yet again another delicious lunch at the Cartwright Arms. My family frequent this establishment quite often and are always greeted well by the friendly staff especially Gary, who in my mind should be managing the place as he is brilliant and knows the place better than anyone. Well on this occasion there appears to be a new manager,... More

Apologies Janet that the welcome was not as warm as usual. Johny Richardson is our new manager at The Cartwright and I guess you met him during his first couple of weeks. Believe me, he is a really nice chap, a great chef who worked with us at our Villiers Hotel in Buckingham, and now taking on his first management... More
