Attended a friend's birthday party at this hotel and both the facilities for the party and the bedroom accommodation were excellent. Superb beers on tap, the catering for the party was very good and the breakfast was perfect too.

My wife and I went earlier this year, as part of a local walking group, for our annual New Year lunch.The meal was excellent with good portions properly cooked and served.The staff went to a lot of trouble to make sure we were looked after. Based on this year's experience we would certainly return next year.

We joined friends for an evening meal at this small friendly establishment. There is a decent menu to choose from offering traditional 'pub grub'. However as a group we opted for the special which was 'Curry night'. The was a choice of three curries two meat-based and a vegetable Balti. Boiled rice was provided as were onion samosas, popadoms and... More

The shower was fantastic, lovely soft fluffy towels, couldn't have wished for better. We ate in the restaurant on Saturday night... More

Decided to have Saturday lunch after a walk in Wimpole Park. Hubby really fancied a steak and kidney pie. This was on the menu so order one each served with potatoes of our choice and vegetables. Pie in a pot placed on top of a serviette which was a problem considering gravy! Plenty of tender meat and plenty of kidney,... More

Our hotel that we booked ended up being overbooked, so they recommended staying here for the night. Because it was late, we decided to stay. The interior of the restaurant/bar could definitely use some updating. The stairs wind up and are a bit dangerous, particularly when you're carrying bags. Our room was outdated, but clean, however had a sewer odor... More
