The Hotel is still warm and cosy, but something has altered in the staff or in the ownership of this lovely old hotel.
We have eaten here several times and always had a great experience in both dining and in soaking up the atmosphere. Last week we phoned to check they were still serving lunch on Sunday, and could we still bring our well behaved dog with us , which we were told we could - no problem.
We arrived, at the quietest time we could think of - quite prepared to leave our dog in the car if the lounge bar was busy. However after driving 50 miles and on entering an unusually empty lounge bar, where we have always been before, we were told now that anyone with dogs had to sit in the public bar. This was a normal 'mens' drinking public bar, with a large TV, bar stools, a few low tables and chairs almost all of which were taken, as the sport channel was on.
This Hotel also has a conservatory eating area and a formal restaurant, all of which were also open on Sunday. If the lounge had been the only one in the hotel, of course we would have understood, but this seems to have been an arbitory decision off the cuff. They lost out on a good sale on Sunday and to many we have recommended this place to over the years - those with dogs and those without. It is such a shame as it was a lovely place to go, and we love Rosslyn Church. I even phoned the following week, but got the same stock answer.
Anyway it is still a nice place to go, but the atmosphere and its friendly country pub feel seems to have gone somewhere else.
