I opted for a vegetarian pasta main dish which tasted homemade (and delicious). Servings were plentiful. My dessert was a bit of a disaster though. Sounded interesting but was obviously a hash up of everything that was outstanding on the...

We had a lovely lunch in the gardens of this folly. Great to eat in the garden with stupendous views. The food was very good and the staff were exceptional. I have no hesitation in recommending this experience.

Fabulous location, clean and tidy rooms some with stunning views, food and service bordering on very top class and all the staff were professional, fun and attentive without being invasive and were especially brilliant with the children.The atmosphere in the well-equipped bar serving the delicious local Hook Norton beer was convivial and friendly. Can't wait to return.

Dear Jo, Let me set the scene for you....
