sorry to say that this did not live up to expectations; the rooms are in a converted granary - the decor (curtains, upholstery) is faded, carpets a bit grubby and the sofas very uncomfortable. Although advertised that this separation of accommodation from the restaurant gives peace and quiet, sadly our whole meal in the restaurant (where we were the only guests) was punctuated by the full sounds of the kitchen - washing up, cooking, clattering - far from peaceful. The bar area is very small and the set up - having to walk across the courtyard to get to it and the restaurant - would be very frustrating if it was raining. Food was OK but nothing special - and at £40 per head for a set menu , no choice, very average and very overpriced we thought - we've eaten better this week for a lot less and even tea and coffee is extra. Unlike other places we stayed during the same week's holiday, Percy's was sadly lacking in ambience and personal touch. In fact, we invited the owner and his wife (who had been cooking) at the end of dinner to share our champagne and have a glass with us - as a toast- as it was our silver wedding anniversary that day. We still can't understand why he thought it appropriate to whisk off the remains of our champagne with alacrity - never to reappear with his good lady to toast our celebration. We can only hope they enjoyed quaffing our champagne!! Not only was there no acknowledgment of our special event - they weren't even there to say goodbye the next day. Very disappointing. Wish we had been aware that ,this is a B&B in nicely converted outbuildings - not, in the traditional sense, a country hotel with the cosy public areas, and amenities such as a pool, spa or games room one might expect. Nice cotton sheets!!
