We visit family from Kent two or three times a year and always come to The Tempest at least twice when we are up.The food and atmosphere are always great and we are well looked after by all the staff especially Claire who knows us well now! The choice on the menu and hymn sheet(daily menu) are both excellent and... More

Always seems to be very busy so be sure to book, service was fast and food excellent. We had steak it was cooked to perfection, we tried to squeeze in a pudding but failed to finish this, will try again next time. Also keen to stay in the hotel but seems to be fully booked

This has slowly become a local favourite over the last few months lovely food and good specials. The staff are attentive but not pushy. The price for the area is about right and you definitely get value.

Been here before and really fancied the Hot tub, however had to book well in advance. We had two days and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, plastic wineglasses and champagne flutes included. The Hot tub has a lovely 40° temperature and was really relaxing. Superb room and lovely views from the tub. Remember to book well in advance though as the... More

The Tempest Arms has never disappointed, this was our 9th or 10th stay. We were in room 16, a junior suite with a huge bed, windows on 2 sides and a French door with small balcony overlooking the stream. Everything you could possibly need is provided, the room is clean and fresh. The only thing which could spoil room 16... More

Great place for time away from the hustle and bustle of life. Amazing food at dinner and great breakfast too. Room very comfortable and sofa gave us space to chill too. Would definitely return in the future.

The five of us visited The Tempest Arms on Sunday with relatives and had a superb meal, portions so enormous we were glad we didn't order starters. Good service the only let down was that we were squeezed onto a small table for four! We will definitely go again

I drive past The Tempest Arms regularly and the car park is always full. Why? Simple, it is a consistently high standard Inn for food service and accommodation. As a regular visitor I have tried many meals from the menu, I have never had a disappointing one. Every meal that comes past as you sit in the sumptuous cosy bar... More
