Nice room and bathroom ensuite. The staff were all very pleasant. Food terrible steak that I had full of gristle and no taste, my wife chicken was so dry and tasteless very disappointing food. We thought that someone would have asked if we had enjoyed our stay if this had happened we could have voiced our opinion at the time... More

The service at the tables both at Breakfast and at Dinner was very good. Food was well presented, good choice of wines and ales. We stayed in... More

We had a very pleasant 2 night stay at this Country Inn. We stayed in room 7, which was a larger than average double room with lovely en-suite. The room was spotlessly clean, as was the Inn. It had been refurbished to a realy nice standard, with lovely gardens.

We did not stay at the hotel but used the Restaurant having pre-booked. We received a very nice welcome when we called in and booked earlier in the day. On arrival we again received a warm welcome and were shown straight away to our table; we arrived 15-minutes early. An extensive and varied menu with daily specials; one of the... More

My friend and I booked in for a Saturday night out and were very pleased we did. Having already had some prosecco before coming out, our cheesy garlic bread starter was just what we needed. I was particularly awkward and asked if a starter could be made into a main course, which was no problem at all for the friendly... More
