Quiet and comfortable. Our room (Beech) looked out over the rolling countryside and was warm and well appointed. Kevin and Carole were charming and on hand to provide our every need. The dinner menu offered a huge choice. My steak was tender and delicious. Breakfast offered another vast range of options. I chose the Devon breakfast and my wife the... More

My room was very comfortable with a really comfortable double bed, ensure bathroom with an enormous tub. Nice in room touches like perfume and toiletries. There was a mini bar that would be stocked on... More

I took a local resident here for a birthday meal, and again was not disappointed. We often eat here when we are looking for a quiet meal locally. We enjoy the ambience of the place, and we are well-known to the owner, so we are always dealt with in a friendly manner which adds greatly to the pleasure of the... More

Promising decor if a bit contrived... A bit like the menu.. Vegetables soggy and tasteless.. Never seen Bubble and Squeak so runny and grey!! Portion size was mean and money grabbing, which given the pricing on the menu, was disappointing .. Not for me

The gazebo was the perfect setting for our outdoor ceremony and the rafters room created a lovely atmosphere at the wedding breakfast. The food was excellent and we... More

Small containeer each of coleslaw, pasta and cous cous on each table approximately enough to serve 3/4 people. Pork was very well... More
