Although the location has nothing to offer without a car, be prepared to eat at accommodation - this is not a problem as food is very good. . The accommodation itself is excellent. Comfortable and decorated to a high standard. Get there early to make use of the pool. Comfortable lounge attached to bar to sit in and watch the... More

We stayed for 2 nights and had a great time, the rooms are around a court yard making it very dog friendly with the River Piddle running through the site, great cooling off for the dog! We booked for dinner, bed and breakfast. Good food but in hindsight if we went back would only book B&B as we were not... More

Just had a long weekend at the Poachers Inn staff nice and friendly good food, locals good for a laugh, had the pool all to our selves on Sunday then went to the village fete. Would recommend the rump steak for an evening meal. All in all a good weekend.

Unfortunately our schedule only allowed a one night stay. We were warmly welcomed and quickly checked in and shown to our room. Although we arrived shortly after the lunch service had closed we were able to order sandwiches which we ate in the lovely outdoor area. We had booked a suite which lived up to its description. It was spacious... More

Great value for money. Stunning little village. The staff are very friendly. I would be more than happy to stay here again. I enjoyed my full English breakfast in the morning. The swimming pool is a lovey feature. You would have to be very spoilt or grumpy to give this place a negative review. Well done guys!

A mixed group or us annually book a 3 day stay in a reasonably priced hotel for the men to play golf and the women to sight see. We picked a winner in this inn. Situated in a charming village the rooms were well appointed,spotless and very comfortable. There was something for all tastes in the menu which was well... More

We came here with great expectations, but were sadly let down. We had booked a double room but upon arrival were provided with a twin berth. Upon asking for a room change we were told there were no other rooms available, despite there being a sign outside saying "vacancies". The apology for this cock-up was, at the very least, surly...

Stayed 3 nights in a spacious, quiet, clean twin room while fly fishing the rivers piddle and Froome. Really can't fault it, the service was great, the food and wine excellent value and the rooms comfortable. We took 4 rooms between 5 people and all thought we got good value for money. Thanks

We appreciated our 2 night relaxing break here. Chose the DBB option and found the food the best: great breakfast (no yoghurt on first day but they went out of their way to get some in on the bank holiday for the second morning). We both enjoyed the suppers, but were looking for a change of specials on the second... More
