I booked for a table of 12 in the restaurant for my fathers' 80th birthday and all 12 of us were not happy with the service or the food. It took them 45 minutes to serve the starters, the main course came fairly quickly afterwards, however the dessert was another 45 minute wait. The soup was like dishwater, the deep... More

I stayed in the family room in November with 2 of my daughters. Lovely looking building and our greeting was first class. The owners were lovely friendly people and made us feel very welcome. The room itself was very nice. Comfy, warm, cosy and very clean. Didnt have breakfast (that was extra). Only slight criticism, was the lack of a... More

The building had a nice light ambience, maintaining its old character and style. It was peaceful and the tables in the restaurant were well spaced out. We visited the restaurant on a weekday lunch time. The food was superb and it was the first time I had tasted Black Pudding, a well cooked starter with delicious apples and a tasty... More

Reserved a room for a 1 night stay whilst I was working nearby. Told on the phone it was £55 for bed and breakfast. No problem. Upon breakfast was told its £11.50 per head for breakfast an absolute rip off! The room was very basic TV kept losing signal wafer thin pillows and damp patch on ceiling. The building looks... More

This was a lovely place to stay for convenience to the Cotswolds, Bath and London. The owners are very pleasant and helpful. The food is very good and they have a well stocked and inviting bar. The room was fine but I would recommend they replace the mattresses as I ended up sleeping in the bunk bed in our room... More

The welcome we received upon arrival was first class. We felt like we were staying in a home away from home. The rooms are furnished and decorated in the perfect style for the building. No noise from the outside as in a peaceful setting. The bathroom is a little tired but not dirty at all. The shower does seem to... More

I booked the School House Hotel to put on a BBQ for our 30 staff at our premises and we were not disappointed! Can't put it better than one of our employees, who said "...last night's BBQ was absolutely fantastic, the food was amazing, I've been to many BBQs commercial and home but that food was 10/10 - and gluten...
