The helpful staff organised a special menu for our group of 14, and provided a lovely traditional lounge with roaring stove for pre-dinner drinks, then through to the beautiful dining room, with large single table and chandelier, for a very good meal. Service couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, we were all very impressed with the whole experience.

Had the eggs bacon benedict to start and the lobster pot for main both of which were first class. The lobster pot was crammed full of prawns, crayfish and lobster and came with lovely skinny fries and a very fresh tangy salad. We then shared a sticky toffee pudding and a nice cheese board. We also consumed a nice selection... More

A very pleasant evening meal. Good quality produce used to create tasty dishes. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Wine by the glass can be a bit pricey.

Arrived to be taken to the Barn where we were greated with a line of chairs down one side it looked odd and not very welcoming,Bubbles and canapies were served but seating in a row with no where to put drinks was not ideal to chatting to other guests. Guests were individually escorted back to the restaurant. The meal was... More

The Inn itself is oldy wordly. Staff very pleasant, although Landlord was abrupt in his manner. We booked for a N Y days lunch but the food was very disappointing for the price we paid. We left feeling very disappointed by our experience. Poor value for money as there was little choice on the menu. Fine dining price but the... More

We enjoyed an overnight stay in a lovely room. Our meal was lovely. We shared a seafood platter which was listed on the menu for one but was ample as a starter for two. My husband had the venison of the specials board, I had the lobster pot which was excellent, my husband was very jealous. We'll be returing soon... More
