When we arrived at reception we were both greeted with such a professional but a very warm welcome. Our travel bag and evening clothes were carried over the road to our lovely cottage overlooking the river. This place oozes pure class with everything.

Been going to the French Horn for a number of years now and its been our absolute favourite since our very first visit. Having tried to the Waterside, Manoir, et al for our celebrations, we found the service too stuffy for words, but the French Horn has it mastered. The reception staff and waiters will have a laugh with you,... More

This is the restaurant that Stuart and I had our very first and blind date some 2 years ago. Not sure why they have not signed up to the michelin register but if they did, they would be a 3 star for sure. The sister and brother that now run the restaurant are simply fantastic and ensure your every need... More

The whole family stayed here for our parents Golden Wedding Anniversary on a Friday night. We hired the cottages which are across a busy road from the main hotel, which can be a bit tricky to cross, especially for some who are not that quick on their legs. The receptionist was very friendly and we were offered complimentary newspapers for... More

A group of us were caught in horrendous rain, and sort refuge in what seemed to be a perfect spot, roaring fire.....however, on asking for a drinks menu we were told unless we were guests we could not stay. We even offered to book a room, the rain was that bad, but was told the hotel was fully booked. We... More

I was invited here by my daughters for a birthday lunch. Having heard so many good things about the restaurant I had high expectations and it lived up to them. From the minute we arrived to when we left the staff were charming and attentive and Michael was a superb host. Of the nibbles the cheese sticks were a big... More

From the moment you step through the door you are treated to a wonderful welcome.A drink and nibbles on the terrace overlooking the lawn and river backwater was a good start.Escorted to a delightful table in the conservatory area and then a three course meal which was excellent.Service at all times impeccable and yet very friendly.

The location on the river is lovely, the gardens exceptionally well kept. We stayed in one of cottages but the decor is so outdated, it was like walking into my grandmothers house without the comfort. The furniture and decor are so outdated its ridiculous. The bed is well past it's useful expiration date as you had to cling to the... More

Our recent stay at The French Horn was a very enjoyable experience. The staff mostly from Portugal were fantastic. The management needs to be congratulated on producing not only 1st class accomodation but also for their management skills in providing staff & service of this caliber. Make sure you have a meal in their restaurant , you wont be dissapointed.
