We really loved The Hollow Bottom, the staff were very friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble, the food was absolutely delicious, I would definitely recommend the Venison - it was first class, compliments to the chef. We stayed for 2 nights in Earth Summit, which was so clean and inviting and had absolutely everything we needed. Guiting Power... More

Stayed on a hot July weekend with family. Booked two rooms which were both on the small side but well kitted out and tasteful with all you could need - including good coffee with a cafetiere. Great bathrooms with modern showers and fittings. This is a popular pub with locals and more, making for a hearty atmosphere and there will... More

Stayed just one night but managed to eat lunch, dinner and breakfast! Great pub, excellent staff and the food and wine were super. Bedroom small but very comfortable with views over countryside. Guiting Power is a pretty village, very quiet. Really enjoyed our visit and hope to return soon

We stayed in the hollow bottom in the run up to my friend’s wedding and we had booked out all of the rooms for the wedding party. The team were so friendly and made every effort to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. We had a delicious dinner on the Friday night and then had Maddie the resident makeup artist... More

We stayed a couple of nights, in their annex. It was perfectly comfortable, but nothing amazing. The pub is fine and the people friendly. Watch it, though, with the food. It is overpriced and not very good. If you are there, don't order anything more complicated than a burger or sausages, and you'll be fine.

Thank you for your comments and we are delighted that you found our pub to be both comfortable & friendly. Both our Menus on food & drink are being reviewed at present to help those customers on a tight budget and there will be some radical price changes.

They're all horse-racing mad here, and as it's a 17th century building, the 'guest stables' are a bit snug. But top chef Charlie Pettigrew produces superb cuisine based on top-quality cuts of meat (we sampled the venison and the lamb with a herb crust). You won't find horsemeat on the menu, though!

Its a bit off the beaten track, and due to the rotten weather we weren't able to go out (it was lashing rain and very windy and we had no suitable shoes/clothing).

I booked this as a lastminute cheap night away for myself and my other half. The price I paid was unbelievably good value for money. I won't disclose how much as I know I got it at a reduced rate and it would be unfair on the owners for me to tell the world how much they charged because in... More

Booked here as a last minute overnight break at a reduced rate, staying in the small double above the bar; the last minute discount made it good value for money and although the room was basic and towels a bit frayed around the edges, it was warm and clean.
