Great quality food served by friendly helpful staff. Fantastic lunches with tasty baguette sandwiches! The coronation chicken was delicious. Efficient service, great location! hotel currently under refurbishment as its recently changed ownership. The outside area is great also, a real sun trap.

Took the family here again for an evening meal. Never dissapoints. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Food was excellent and arrived quickly and with a smile. The layout and decor of this restaurant is a real plus as it is well spaced out which is a bonus when you have two small children that need entertaining.

Found by chance - they don't advertise on the web, yet. Really friendly staff. Accommodation a bit 'eclectic', eg no bedside lights, yet. But wonderful room, lovely comfortable bed and the best breakfast we've had for very long time.

Dropped into the Ash Cottage for drinks and a bit of food on a sunny Friday afternoon. Firstly, it is not clear in any way how to place an order. Staff seemed completely lost as to how the place operated. Some people had to order, wait and carry out their drinks, others had them brought out for them. We ordered... More

We could not eat in the main dining area but the adjacent bar is very nice and they serve the same menu. Both meals where very nice and there is a nice atmosphere to the place. The staff are friendly and the service was very good.
