Nine of us had lunch at the Inn at the Elm Tree on 17 December. Everyone afterwards commented on how top class the meals were in taste, presentation and price. The staff were courteous and the service excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

I stayed at this venue on 10th December and I was very pleasantly surprised on arrival, the owners were very friendly and helpful and dinner in the evening was fantastic...the best Lamb I have had in a long time. The bedroom was comfortable and I slept very well. Overall a great place to stay and I highly recommend it.

We were greeted warmly and shown to our spacious room, which was everything we could have wanted, with an outstanding en suite, tea and coffee, TV... More

The best treat of all is the food, which must rate as the best outside of a high end restaurant that i have tasted. We used this as a base for business in Newport, which... More
