We have come to this hotel for several years as an eight strong male group bent on enjoying ourselves and drinking all of their best wine .

Went with a group of 58 for meal out 5th February. The setting, stunning as always, big log fires on. The food was amazing. Service was excellent. Nothing you could fault. First class from start to finish. If I were to mark food out of 10 I would give them a 12.

I was here for a wedding in October and had the vegetarian option with lentils and it was absolutely delicious. It was the best food I have eaten at a wedding. Top notch. Friendly staff and lovely country house atmosphere.

My wife, child and I stayed for the weekend. Very relaxing and we were offered mulled wine on arrival which was a nice touch. There was a lovely Christmas atmosphere and we really enjoyed our meal on the Saturday evening. Although, I would recommend that they serve roast potatoes or similar with the mains, especially at Christmas time. A mixture... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us.
