Great food in an old coaching inn is a tough prospect despite the romantic fantasy that upmarket modern British food cooked to the level of a posh metropolitan restaurant is readily available nowadays.

I could not have been more impressed with our lunch yesterday. I am on a January eating regime which has cut out dairy, gluten, grains and much more (basically meat and veg are OK - makes Sunday roast the perfect meal!). I emailed in advance to ask if they would be able to cater for me, and got a positive... More

Stopped by for a quiet drink and some bar food but ended up spending the whole evening there with our two dogs. We were made very welcome and after some wonderful woodfired pizza and a refreshment or two they even organised a taxi to take us back to Concierge Camping. Thank you girls!

This was my third meal here in the last couple of years. Again, it was outstanding in every respect. Impeccable service, wonderful menu, top-notch cooking and presentation. Each time I've visited, at least one of my party has tried something he or she has never eaten before. Today I ate quail ('Kentucky Fried Quail' as a starter) and my mother... More

Very disappointed with main courses, my pheasant breast was overcooked and very dry, our friends had crab and turkey and both seem to have been under hot grill whilst others were being prepared and subsequently came to table burnt and overcooked. A really spoilt lunch after hearing such good reports,whilst we don't mind paying for quality food today this was... More

My brother in law had his 40th birthday here. The staff were so welcoming and friendly. The food was incredible and the rooms were delicious. Such a great venue for birthdays, weddings, christenings...anything. Both rooms were gorgeous and the beds were so comfy I nearly missed breakfast. So well thought out with all you need including lovely towels, bathrobes, shampoo... More
