We came here for lunch on Sunday just gone and it was amazing! Very good value. £16 for 2 courses and £19 for 3! The quality of food is outstanding and full of flavour! Everything is so fresh and attention to detail is key! Can't think of anywhere else locally you can go and get such high standard of food!... More

Stayed on business with a group of 7. I had a room away from the main house which I was initially skeptical about but worked out very well as parking was available right beside it which was useful and time saving in the mornings. Hotel is very well put together and the bar and restaurant are very pleasing visually. Staff... More

I will be brief on the spa aspect as this review is mainly for the hotel, but I have to say that it was a great relaxing facility. With plenty of hot tubs,... More
