“Lovely open fires and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

My husband, teenage son and I stopped by for lunch here after a day walking in the countryside.
Lovely lunch served on lovely china, highly polished cutlery and crisp large napkins, enjoyed thoroughly by all as we sat in comfy chairs next to an open coal fire :)
Stylish decor and furniture in relaxed atmosphere.

“olde worlde hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

I love this hotel, it is very old in parts but stylish. The rooms are lovely and cosy with comfy beds. The staff are very pleasant, the breakfast has plenty of choice although the cooked part isn't huge.

A super menu with choices ranging from a taster menu right through to single dishes that are a great price.

“Cream teas.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

The tea room is at the side of the main hotel. Food and service are great, especially the cream teas. Certainly worth a visit.
