Stayed here in Aug 2014, the building is fantastic, just a shame the staff let the the business down !!! We found the staff to be rude and unhelpful. The rooms were very clean and well equipped, the building creaks but that's to be expected with its age. The area is beautiful and surrounded by rolling hills and there is... More

We ate here last Sunday and found everything to be spot on. The mains included Duck, steak and chicken - all cooked and served with passion. The restaurant was clean and well appointed. Would visit again.

I would just like to thank the young man who was on reception and breakfast on Friday - 18th July. He is a great asset to Brigands Inn, attentive, charming and polite. I would definitely recommend the Inn, and hopefully he will be on duty when we return again. I'm sorry I didn't get his name. The breakfast was excellent... More

I recently stayed at this hotel whilst away working. The room was large, clean and tidy with a large en-suite bathroom with a free standing bathtub and big shower. The staff were friendly and helpful, even down to fresh milk in your room instead of that carton rubbish! The food was amazing, local fresh ingredients cooked really well. Overall a... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night at the end of June 2014. I booked the hotel the night before with no problem. We were given a very warm welcome on arrival and quickly shown to our room. We were given room 10 at the top of the hotel which was comfortable, roomy and very clean. Lovely views... More

A recent major refurbishment of this lovely old hotel has provided an excellent destination to enjoy a meal.

With an imaginative menu, beautifully cooked and presented food served by friendly and helpful staff, we go out... More
