We booked a Superior room for 2 nights at a cost of £350. I called 4 hours in advance to request a bottle of prosecco (at £25) be placed in our room to surprise my other half as it was our anniversary. Upon arrival, there was no prosecco. Ok not a problem, I thought I had just left it too late. Our room was nice, although missing many of the usual things that you would expect from even a basic hotel. No where to store your clothes, no where to hang your coats, no hand towel for the bathroom, no fridge for the 1 bottle of water that was provided. All we got was a paper bag containing some tea, coffee pods, 4 small portions of milk and some sugar. I appreciate COVID is an issue, so I understand that certain items may be removed, but this was still not good enough from a so called

We booked in for an evening meal last night. We ordered scallops to start, chateaubriand to share, mixed vegetables and crumble for desert. The starter was amazing, however the chateaubriand and vegetables were extremely disappointing and not worth the money. I asked for medium rare, came out more well done. The steak was more like roast beef, thickly sliced and cooked the way you would expect your roast to be on a Sunday and the mixed vegetables were just coloured peppers. Extremely disappointed I would avoid this meal at all costs as it is not worth the money. The desert was exceptional.

We stayed here for our anniversary weekend. We only booked a cosy room as we were only there for one night. Upon arriving at the hotel we were pleasantly surprised, easy, free parking and the place looked beautiful. We were greeted by James on reception who was very welcoming and is a great asset to the team. We checked in quickly. Upon arriving in our room everywhere was clean, apart from the bin which had not been emptied. There was a pair of pants in and other items. I therefore decided to call reception from the room. When we told James about the bin he was sincerely sorry and arranged for someone to collect it straight away. We assume it was the manager who arrived with a complimentary bottle of prosecco and two glasses. This was a really nice touch and was

Room 2 was quaint, comfortable and relatively quiet given the age of the inn ( England’s oldest ) , though only small ensuite shower and toilet ( sink in room) and some tricky steps to get in if you have reduced mobility. Staff were great as was overall ambiance of the place , evening meal and breakfast were also very good . The apple pie dessert delicious as was the chateaubriand which was very well prepared though at £60 for two needs to be for a special occasion. The inclusive DB&B rate with a £30 meal contribution p.p was £10 higher than the B&B rate and spending your own money in the restaurant , so presume it was so as inclusive of tip. Overall enjoyable visit, very friendly and helpful staff and as it’s a very old establishment with interesting history , witches marks
