I was attending a re-enactment with my son at nearby Spernal, these events are a weekend of camping in a muddy field (given the typical English June weather) with about 1000 other people, whilst it can be fun a comfy bed and a hot bath at the end of a day lugging a spear and a shield around is pretty...

Our breakfasts were fresh, a good size and our... More

A last minute booking for a night in Stratford; loved it from arrival 'till departure. The building is in the process of being refurbished, the ground floor restaurant/bar area having been completed. We found the food of a good quality and the bar well stocked with draught beers and a good selection of wines. I would say it was a... More
