We stayed here when our original booking at another B&B had made a mistake with our reservation, so they organised for us to stay here. The place looked lovely as soon as we drove up. We got the Strawberry Bank Suite. Very nice. Has its own little kitchen, 4 poster bed and a bath in the room too and a... More

We have eaten here once before and returned for tea with family, this time we were disappointed. We arrived at 5.20pm, full menu not served until 6pm so sat on the lovely terrace outside. This filled up quickly ready for the 6pm rush so no tables left shortly before six. I felt the bar staff were awkward in not taking... More

What an amazing place! The location, room, food and staff are all fantastic! We held our wedding reception here recently and we can not fault the place, everyone had a brilliant time. The staff are so accommodating, the service could not have been any better! Would totally recommend a visit, we will certainly be going back soon!

We visited the hotel for lunch recently. It came highly recommended and didn't disappoint. The building was very attractive and the service was friendly and efficient. The menu was so interesting for a lunch menu and all four of us enjoyed our varied choices. the view from the upstair's window was stunning and the furnishings just completed the traditional feel...

I decided on the starter portion of ribs instead of the main course size and i am so glad i did as the portion size... More

I have stayed here before and used the bar and restaurant on many other occasions, so I drove there really looking forward to my stay. The rooms are fantastic, more of a suite than just a room. The selection of drinks in the bar is superb, but when we ordered food, we found the quality and service was not up... More

There are no words to describe how breathtakingly beautiful this place is. I booked the strawberry bank suite for the weekend for my boyfriends birthday and it certainly did not disappoint. The suite itself was absolutely stunning. The bath in the room was a really nice touch. We ate in the restaurant the first night, and although it was a... More

Very nice location with a selection of nice clean rooms. They serve great food and some pretty good beer. Lovely walks from the door. You will get a 4 mile and a 9 mile option with a very accurate map. It's obviously busy Summer weekends with a great buzz.
