My wife and I stayed here for 1 night as part of our holiday visiting National Trust properties in the area. Very friendly staff and stayed in a nice large room, although it could do with a lick of paint here and there, but nothing that would detract from your stay. You MUST have a meal in the restaurant. Well... More

In the area for school reunion and didn't fancy camping, definitely had the better choice, very comfortable beds with lovely thick duvet and fluffy pillows. Good hot shower in the morning followed by a superb cooked breakfast, very lovely and attentive staff, excellent overnight stay, would definitely go back if school reunion number 2 is arranged.

Attended a friends wedding , the ceremony took place there also , the surroundings and venue were beautiful on one of the hottest days of the year. The food was exceptional having a 3 course meal in the afternoon that looked and tasted like something you would get in a Michelin starred restaurant. The buffet in the evening was like... More

There's a lot about this place that is good - attentive, friendly staff, reasonably good menu & good service in between courses. However, I can't sing their praises fully when it comes to the quality of the food. I had the roast pork & it wasn't the best I've tasted, that's for sure. I'd probably describe my meal as ok...

Spent just one night at the Shaw Country House, to find a very professional Hotel well managed by the highly experienced owners. Sadly because of our circumstances we were unable to have dinner in the restaurant, but did have a fabulous breakfast with the best plate of fresh fruit salad we've seen! Already decided to return on our next trip,... More

We chose this place to stay for a five day having read earlier reviews. We weren't disappointed - it was excellent. We were particularly impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. I had one of the best steaks I have eaten and the fresh fruit at breakfast looked like a food magazine photo. I could easily have stayed... More

We were given a voucher for Shaw Country Hotel. We decided to pay a visit on a beautiful day for Lunch. On arrival Emma took us into the bar and served us drinks while we looked at the Menu. The set Luncheon provided adequate choices of Starters, mains and desserts, we were spoilt for choice as they say. We were... More

My goddaughter got married here in May and it was perfect. We stayed the night before and the night of the wedding. Setting is idyllic, beautiful grounds, delicious restaurant and accommodating staff. Emma and Nick work their collective backsides off and it shows in everything at the Shaw Country House. Room was comfortable with a strong shower, wifi in the... More

although the hotel is a little shabby and could do with refurbishing the hospitality and welcome was WONDERFUL! Nothing was too much bother for the staff. The room we had was small but adequate for a one night stay. We enjoyed a delicious hearty breakfast in the morning.
