We came here for food rather than accomodation - lovely set up in a former school, with nice touches like old fashioned sports kit scattered around for decoration. The food wasn't cheap but definitely worth the money. Generous main course portions mean you can easily just split one side between two and still have more than enough. We tried the... More

This is actually our local, but I thought I'd write because when we went this week it was excellent. We've never had BAD service or food here, but the food/service on some previous visits hadn't matched the lovely environment, and we'd nearly reduced it to a fabulous drinking pub. However, things seem to have improved. Bar staff were funny, indulgent... More

This would have been an overwhelmingly good review, except for several issues. Firstly, we loved both the pub and the rooms at the Headmasters House. They were very attractive, clean and comfortable. The food was excellent, especially the delicious breakfast. The position makes it an good base for visiting the beautiful surrounding countryside. But - when one is paying £90... More

the food was good however the staff seemed to take efficiency to new levels. It was difficult to get their attention and their communication was almost curt. it is extremely rare that I do not leave a good tip however I found myself unable to. Watched the way staff interacted with other customers and it was similar.

We enjoy going to the Cholmondeley Arms for drink or two, as it is a good meeting place, but regret our decision to go there for dinner. Dinner must be ordered at the bar, no one will come and take your order. No manager to be seen. Food certainly not worth the money charged (had better elsewhere at half the... More

My Husband & I stated here in March. The room was clean, very comfy and full of character. The food in the pub is just fantastic too. Breakfast was yummy. We will be back with friends to share this place.

We were booked in to attend a gin tasting evening unfortunately the guy who takes it was ill. We still decided to go along and the staff were all fantastic. We were still able to taste some of their 182 different makes of gin with some information on how to serve to get the full flavour from each of them.... More

Have stayed here on many occasions over the last twenty years, this is the first time to leave a review of any kind. The weather, as we all know has been particular bad, however, last tonight was particularly bad, force 12 at sea, and similar on land. I was travelling up from the South and the journey took an extra... More

We ordered a starter and main course and tea for two. The service was excellent as was the food. The starters were attractively presented. We had pate and scallops, both dishes being full of flavour and tantalising to our palates for the main event Our main courses of sirloin steak chips and homemade onion rings were fantastic. The quality of... More
