We had a very brief stay at The Cott Inn and were impressed by the friendly staff and excellent food. We stayed on a Tuesday night which was 'fish and chips for 2 for £16' night and this was clearly popular as the restaurant was busy - the fish and chips were definitely worth it! Food centred around locally sourced... More

A lovely stay in room 6. Pristinely clean with contemporary decor which complemented the old building beautifully. A warm welcome greeted us on our arrival and the high quality of service continued throughout our stay...the staff were excellent . Anton and his team certainly strive to excel and achieve their aims . We had dinner in the restaurant, accompanied by... More

This is a well run traditional looking Inn. We have stayed at The Cott regularly over the past few months and have nothing but praise for the quality of the service, food and accommodation. The en suite bedrooms are spotlessly clean, warm and fitted out in a modern style. Wonderfully comfortable beds with lovely thick towels in the bathrooms. The... More

I have stayed in this delightful B&B in March with my family. Staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The room was small but immaculate, and curiously appeared to be directly over the bar area. However, it was not at all noisy and at night we have heard only the owls. We had a meal in the evening and... More

Not sure where to start. You melted into the bed so comfy. Great food and drinks. Its amazing how the hotel keeps the traditional look externally and also around the bar area but manages to create brilliant modern fit out rooms. Highly recommend staying here. Would love to return with the other half sometime in the future. The WiFi was... More

We called in here originally to book a lunch for our small wedding party as we live not far away, had driven past many times but never called in before. We were greeted by Anton the manager, who despite being very busy on a Friday lunchtime could not have been more helpful. We booked the lunch and decided to book... More

best roast dinner we have had in ages! lovely homemade soup and a variety of other starters which are full of flavour and well presented. The roast dinner is good quality and well cooked meat, homemade yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes are fresh. The vegatables always taste fresh and have none of that microwave feel to it all fresh and... More

Right from the call to book the room until we left this has been a pleasurable experience. I have never know friendlier, happier staff who obviously enjoy where they work and want you to enjoy it too. Our room was bright, comfortable and spotless. The food was excellent. High quality but without any gastro-pub pretentiousness or small portions. Excellent breakfast.... More

I came here for dinner for valentines day this year. There was a set menu which still had plenty to choose from, three courses cost £30 and you certainly left feeling very full! The restaurant was packed out as to be expected and we were sat at a "sharing" table so not ideal for a romantic meal for two. Our... More
