Love Byfords. Having stayed at the Kings Head on a previous trip (also great B & B - with breakfast at Byfords proper), was really looking forward to a night in the posh B & B. Stayed in Room 11, and wasn't disappointed. Under floor heating in the bathroom was heavenly, as was the shower. Bed huge, and very comfortable.... More

Just returned from another wonderful stay at Byfords - a firm favourite with us both but this time with a surprise ending. We had booked two nights Dinner/Bed/Breakfast. When we came to pay the bill the lovely lady at Reception advised she was reducing our room rate as we hadn't eaten enough food to warrant the D/B/B rate. We were... More

Being a relative local I have always been sceptical about Byfords being full of weekenders from London! Following a rainy walk with a friend and our 14 year old daughters we popped in for lunch. The staff were really friendly and the food worth every penny. I am looking forward to returning for dinner!!

My sister and I had afternoon tea here recently.....considering it was 8 days into January I didnt really want a turkey/stuffing sandwich! and the cakes were rather random and mini in size! also a decent scone has in my view got to be the main feature of an afternoon tea and again they were two very average mini ones. Eaten... More

We stayed in a downstairs room with access from the car park. It was a lovely room. We appreciated our welcome tea and cake in the restaurant when we had settled into the room. We ate in the Restaurant one night which was also good. All in all we would highly recommend his place.

Restaurant experience... good enjoyable food in a comfortable environment with the right amount of attentive service. There is a pleasant old-fashioned (in a good way) atmosphere about this place. Especially enjoyable on a chilly evening.

I booked to stay in room 3 after seeing photos of the Posh B&B rooms on the website. The booking service was fantastic and the room the spectacular with a huge bed and exposed brick walls, a fireplace and a gorgeous bathroom with double ended bath and drench shower. The little touches in the room like the biscuits and the... More

Byfords is classy. The accommodation (room one) is of a very high standard - warm, cozy, well designed with top quality fixtures and fabrics. The food experience is more variable. Breakfast is superb - plenty to choose from and relaxed but slick service. During the busier lunch and dinner sittings the quality of service slips slightly and is less attentive... More

As soon as we arrived we felt welcome and at home. Byfords has a unique character. It is luxurious yet homely with lots of special touches. We were offered complimentary tea/coffee and cake (a fantastic choice and so delicious!) on arrival. We also had home made shortbread in our room. We stayed in room 11 which is just a few... More

I just love Byfords. The atmosphere, the staff are so friendly and of course the food is always good. Whenever you call in, breakfast, dinner or afternoon tea. It is a pleasure. A big thank you to the staff, who are always helpful.
