We spent a few days here, fishing, walking and eating good food. It is extremely relaxing and very dog friendly. This extended to the staff and other guests. There was plenty of dog walking around and in the grounds. We were completely at ease. The food was very good with good accompanying wines. The fishing, whether you chose to be... More

Just what the doctor ordered after a very long day at work, beautiful room backing on to the lovely gardens which were so peaceful , once settled in my room I arranged to have dinner in the restaurant, something I don't normally do when travelling alone. The menu has so much choice and the quality of the food is excellent,... More

The pub was a mix of old and new. It was clean and a nice ace to be. Usual carvery joints and veg but of a high quality and well cooked. I really enjoyed my meal and hope to return. The puddings looked great but I had no room left.

Stayed at the Fox and Hounds as I had a business meeting nearby. The first thing to say is the surrounding countryside is fantastic and the hotel is nestled in the trees. The atmosphere is very laid back, I could imagine being on a walking holiday here, but unfortunately not to be for this stay. My room was good, small... More

Lovely hotel in a beautiful setting. Clean and comfortable with a great local breakfast. Only slight downside was that service could have been a bit better at breakfast as they seemed short staffed. Fantastic 'trencher' meal in restaurant. Will be back!

We love the trenchers too! We have introduced a new BBQ one...so we hope you'll be back soon to try it. I am sorry to learn that breakfast was a little disappointing. I do hope that perhaps on a return visit you will see this has changed for the better More

We stayed here on our way back from holiday, having chosen the hotel from the Internet. We were allocated Room 2, which turned out to be the Bridal Suite [about 49 years late for that!] a spacious room with a huge eight-foot, four-poster bed and deluxe bathroom, romantic pictures on the walls and white furniture. Quite a surprise! The hotel... More

Well I am thrilled your unofficial 'second honeymoon' was so enjoyable. Hopefully you'll be back soon to enjoy your official second honeymoon; perhaps in the Bridal Suite. Maybe for an anniversary? More

We used this hotel as a stop over when travelling from north of England to Cornwall. Comfortable, clean, excellent food, and dog friendly. I could have taken the dogs to our room but opted to leave them in the vehicle. On site is a superb walk for the dogs, with safe freedom by a beautiful fishing river.
