We stayed at Blenheim House exactly 25 years ago on our wedding night, which was at the time a fantastic surprise for my (then) new wife. On that night we stayed in the bridal suite, which was perfect on that occasion. I decided to try and recapture that moment for our silver wedding (which sometimes may be a little foolish)... More

The very much enjoyed the friendly welcome, location, atmosphere, facilities in general, friendly staff, excellent food, comfortable bed, cleanliness and last but not least the sympathetically restored old building. During our 3 night stay we dined in and found the food to be excellent and very well presented. Breakfasts were also a pleasure – there was a variety of cereals,... More

We are as a large group on Friday night. Many of us have eaten many tines here before but I have to say this was one of the best meals we had there. Very good food full of great flavours excellent service and good wine. It's not cheap but it's a real treat. Certainly worth a visit for food but... More

Blenheim House is actually two adjacent rather old buildings, joined together. Apparently both were once farmhouses, although the location is right on the main street of the village. The public areas are modernised in a contemporary style, although some of the old character remains. The bar area is comfortable and relaxing and there are tables outside for warmer days. Real...

Just a couple of weeks ago I spent a long weekend at the Blenheim house hotel. I brought with me two young people to let them experience English hospitality and the wonderful scenery of the countryside. The hotel, the staff, the food - evrything was superb. For us, from Norway, the cooked English breakfast with black pudding was like from... More

Stayed here one night in January for business reasons. Charming welcome. Room adequate but very cold on arrival. The young receptionist offered the unasked for explanation that 'it's easier to heat up a room rather than lower the temperature.' The shower room was pitifully small ..the loo roll holder hung out over the seat itself making it rather uncomfortable for... More

Recommended by friends and having waited a couple of weeks to get a reservation, expectations were high. Food was good but not exceptional and quite highly priced for both location and food experience. I presume the inflated prices are in line with catering for weddings and parties and on reflection the fish and chip menu looked more appealing than that... More

Good evening and thank you for taking the time to write your review, we were sorry to read that you were not as impressed as you were hoping to be. We generally have great feedback on both food and service but we cannot please everyone. Our pricing is based on fresh local ingredients which are then cooked fresh to order... More

This venue was recommended by two different friends and since we were looking for somewhere for a special birthday celebration without having to travel into the city centre, it was an ideal choice. We were very pleasantly surprised, both at the initial welcome and the very attentive service throughout. The menu was wide enough to cater for a vegetarian in... More

We wanted to meet friends, have lunch, play bridge, have some tea and sandwiches a beer or two and leave about 21.00. Everything was organised perfectly. Mild amusement at the old fogies round the bridge table. Menu cleverly restricted so that things could be done to order, great beers. Generally just as we asked.
