Always a very warm welcome. Dinner menu varied and great quality with a good wine choice. Rooms will give you a good night sleep following by an excellent breakfast. This is a place to stay for an escape to the country.

A truly lovely stay in a quiet hamlet where the only sound is birdsong, we were welcomed at the door on arrival and immediately shown around and offered refreshments. Our room number 2 was spotlessly clean and very comfatable with fresh fruit as well as home made biscuits, tea and coffee with fresh milk stored in a chilled flask, the... More

The building is obviously several old cottages knocked into one and is really interesting. The couple that run it are very friendly but are not annoyingly so, and do give you space. We couldn't fault the food and the home made jam and compote is delicious.

Stayed for three nights. The proprietors were very friendly, food very good especially the choice of dried and fresh fruit to accompany muesli for breakfast (and the indulgence of Eggs Benedict one morning), with dinner having some interesting choices including monkfish satay, saddle of deer and runner beans from the garden, which we enjoyed sitting in at teatime. Several wines... More

This is a very strange place. From the outside it looks as if it might be a pub, but there is no sign. The only hints it may be a building open to the public are the semblance of a car park across the road a very small sign by the open door, and some old rolled up sample menus... More

We booked for a long Bank holiday weekend, looking for a out of the way B & B with great food, which Ken obviously has a passion to provide for his guests and restaurant customers. Our room was most comfortable and breakfast a delight with vast choice, looking out onto their wonderful garden and the surrounding hillside and local wildlife.... More

I visited the Waterdine with my parents in early March 2015. The whole evening was lovely. From helpful advice on taxis etc when booking the table, through to waving us goodbye, the hosts could not have been more helpful or attentive. The venue itself is lovely - beautiful and full of character but well-maintained. The welcome was warm and friendly.... More

An excellent value set menu. Good choice of interesting dishes utilising local ingredients, and skilfully crafted by a most experienced chef. A sound wine list with sensible mark-ups! Service is friendly and efficient. The location is outstanding in a beautiful part of the Welsh Marches. I could not imagine a nicer spot to base oneself on a holiday in this... More
