A good and interesting restaurant.

We visited for lunch on the May Day Monday and would definitely return, enhanced by the amazing view and that funny yellow blob in the sky, the sun.

Thank you for your review and for bringing the "blob" with you. It's certainly a lovely vista below and across from us and in May it very often is at it's clearest. Delighted you enjoyed your meal and even more so that you will return. John More

The Cottage in the Wood is becoming our default destination for family special occasions. Relaxed atmosphere, good service and most importantly a good choice of very well presented food.

It's always a compliment when a diner says it's their special place or that it's the default position. Reassuring, as it shows a level of consistency and makes the hard work very worthwhile. Look forward to your next visit. Thank you for the review. John More

Lovely menu, very well presented and very tasty. Best thing on my plate was a miniature chicken and leek pie - could have eaten a plateful of those on my own. Superb dessert too.

My wife took me here for a Birthday celebration dinner on a Saturday night in January but we were both disappointed at the total lack of ambience in both the bar area and the outlook restaurant. The furnishings and decor which I'm sure are very good quality are never the less very old fashioned and give the overall feeling that... More

I'm saddened to read you did not enjoy the atmosphere at The Cottage in the Wood. To try to be all things to all people means that eventually you are nothing to nobody, so our style is traditional but with classic food with a modern twist - I'm glad that you enjoyed that element of your visit. I guess that... More

My boyfriend had ham hock for starters (kinda wish I had that too - so so lovely!!), pork belly,... More

Now come on, you would go off pop!!! Delighted to read you loved your visit, food, service and ambiance. Thank you for the review and we hope we can look after you again. It's lovely on a summers day when you can take drinks outside before the meal and coffee out on the terrace afterwards. Roll on the summer! John More

Brilliant place. Tucked away in the hills. It is not just one building but three a short walk away from each other. Each one is very different from the other. Also the bedrooms are all different but all very comfortable. Staff superb. Meals are delightful. For a special occasion i.e. Wedding Anniversary, Birthday etc. the ideal place. Lovely views of...

Thanks for your kind review and detailed description of the way our hotel is situated. Having three buildings spreads the rooms out and also gives different character to each room. We are delighted that you enjoyed the quality of food and service. We all strive to achieve consistency and warmth of welcome is important too. We hope to see you... More

The belly pork, and tenderloin wrapped in prosciutto was delicious. My husband had the salmon done 3 ways as a starter. He said it was one of the best starters he has ever had!
