We booked for our 15th anniversary and searched the net for a small hotel with old style character. The pub/hotel/inn looked the ticket on the web and did not disappoint. It is an eclectic collection of all things to do with the military, cathedral and college along with great caricatures etc. We booked the Beaufort room on the 3rd floor, which was very well presented with a modern bathroom- including slipper bath. Warning- the floorboards creak like mad-just part of a 275 yr old building- probably not great for those 1 floor below!
We loved the small city area and the walks along the water meadows in spring and summer would be great if not flooded.
The sunday lunch was very tasty- recommend booking. The bar was well stocked - as it should be and the beer offered a good choice. Breakfast provided the full choice and didn't disappoint. Staff were very friendly and attentive.
We had a good time.
Only little niggle was the incessant swearing of one mourner at a wake in the bar on Monday afternoon-we moved in the end.
