4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Standing in beautiful grounds this looked to be a classic place to call for a meal. We were served within minutes of arrival and our meals were ready in good time. Enjoyed the food, the staff were polite and the table and surrounding area was clean so we had no complaints at all. Would visit again without doubt.

We unpacked changed and went to dinner. Service was quick to start with but we were one of first few to be seated. Food was... More

Don't recommend this pub. I asked for the scampi changed to chicken on a combo starter because I am allergic to prawns and some fish. Got a NO. When I said all the other fayre and square pubs do this I still got a rude NO. We go to fayre and square a lot and never encountered this attitude before.

Stayed here one night on 2nd July. Had room 4 which is a large family room. Double bed was in fact two singles pushed together which didn't make for the best nights sleep. Both pub and hotel rooms need freshening up. Horrible stale smell in the stairwell leading up to the rooms. I ate here. The food is typical pub... More

Value for money it was adequate. Unfortunately our room obviously had two radiator leaks in the room as there were buckets and towels on the floor. I was not aware of this on arrival and not sure a wet floor is what you would want. Also the bathroom door was loose and came off. The staff were friendly and efficient... More

We stayed for 2 nights in an executive double, paying just over £50 a night. The room was located in the main building – this may be where all the executive doubles are located (though can’t confirm this). For what was a very reasonable price for a Friday and Saturday night booking, I was impressed with the quality of the... More

We paid £90 for 2 nights in a twin room and were satisfied for the price. This is a beautiful old house that has been adapted. Our room was quite large for a twin and the colours, white and a light sage, were in keeping with the period of the property. Overall we were happy because it was clean, the... More
