This was our third stay and we were there with a car owners group for a wine tasting and matching foods dinner and overnight stay. The welcome was warm and we were shown to our room. This room was our smallest to date but was nicely appointed and had a great bathroom. The wine tasting presented by Charles Steevenson MW from Tavistock was brilliant, lots of information and a great cross section of wines. The accompanying food was excellent and the service discrete but efficient. The log fires were struggling to stay alight so some attention needed. The big disappointment was breakfast when 14 of us had to wait up to 45 minutes for food to arrive and hot toast and fresh tea failed to connect with the cooked food. The explanation given was that the chef wanted to cook everything fresh but no-one wants such a long wait for breakfast. As a result things then got rushed and some food was not properly cooked. There was no apology or explanation at any stage from the staff serving. We were promised it would never happen again but the fact remains it shouldn't have happened in the first place with such experienced owners.
