Delicious dinner and breakfast

We stayed here for one night and as we arrived fairly late in the evening, exhausted and hungry, we were not very excited about driving around looking for somewhere to eat. They had room for us at their restaurant and so we ate there, and we are very glad we did. There were five of us and we all... read more

Nice small dining room and better than you'd expect from a small lodge. Still the service and cooking feels very personal, almost like a home cooked meal with restaurant touch.

Having been here for Sunday lunch several times before a family group of nine of us returned recently for a repeat experience and were not disappointed. The menu is fairly limited in choice but this means that all the available dishes are fresh and well prepared. Between us I think we sampled most of the starters and no one was... More

Stayed 1 night at this hotel, booked a table for 4 no trouble. Staff very friendly and attentive. Limited menu and quite pricey, we chose the Boxmoor Burger and Chicken Supreme and all very nice, would have struggled for choice if we were staying another night.

We were going to go somewhere else fro my Birthday meal this year, but every time I rang, the phone was engaged, so I decided to try here again. No problem, got a table, and the food was as good as ever. Prompt service, not waiting for ages between courses, and they were serving a large party at one table.... More

Went for a family meal here to celebrate my Mum's 70th birthday. The staff were so attentive and couldn't be more helpful. The food was absolutely spot on. I would definitely like to visit here again and would recommend. Note:- the bar area was really small and the room off it was small and already full when we arrived. We... More

I'm vegetarian and sadly this means that meals out tend to be unimaginative and dull. But this meal was superb from beginning to end: imaginative food with wonderful flavours, beautifully served.
