We ate here last night & had a bit of a wait which we were warned about but meal was well worth the wait - beautiful slow roasted chicken & lovely variety of beautifully cooked vegetables, my husband had a steak which was also good. Our only mistake was not knowing about it before as staying in the Premier Inn... More

This is a hotel that has character and is "off the beaten track". It is handy if you are visiting tourist attractions nearby, or travelling on the A1 and wanting somewhere to stop that is restful. Our room was large and had everything we needed. We were given a room on the second floor which seemed a lot of stairs... More

We recently attended a wedding reception at The Manners Arms. It was a WOW on every level. 100 guests with a Marquee located in the garden. There were even menu choices (pre-ordered of course) and the service was slick and managed with absolute regimented precision. It was a joy to watch but even more of a joy to eat the... More

We had our fairly small wedding reception here, also stayed with some of our family for three nights. We chose this location as we wanted something cozy with rural charm, and are very satisfied. My wife and I were in one of the rooms on the top floor (called Violet Soul, or something like that) and had fantastic views over... More

The meal was the best steak we'd all ever had, there were four of us, ordered different steaks and sauces, all fantastic. we all had... More

Tok up a Groupon offer for and overnight and breakfast for two. We were not disappointed! We were greated by a cheery member of staff at check-in on a gloomy afternoon. All sorted smoothly and pleasantly. This is an off the beaten track little gem. The rooms are furnished very well although our en suite shower room was a mite... More

Right from our arrival everyone was welcoming. Our room was lovely with great views and a big comfy bed. We even saw a fabulous sunset as there's very little light pollution here. Food in the restaurant was excellent with Surf and Turf all beautifully cooked and served. Log fire in lounge was an added bonus as we enjoyed our coffee.... More

Had a lovely first stay at the Manners Arms recently given to us as a gift. We have had several meals at the Manners but never stayed over. We had the dinner bed and breakfast package and was really good value. We will definitely be returning. The 3-course meal was divine. All courses top quality food, tasty and beautifully presented....

Stayed using b&b Groupon voucher - for this price room was very good (huge bedroom & bed, very clean bathroom)... It also meant we could both enjoy a relaxing drink with dinner. Location is lovely and quiet/rural. Bar area is lovely, nice ambience & very welcoming feel (think dark wood, comfy leather chairs, open fire, but also light & bright).... More
