What a fantastic proper country inn. Close to London, great walks and a fantastic and charming restaurant. We stayed up eating and drinking wine for hours by the fire - was a perfect weekend getaway. We brought the dog and he was also more the welcome.

Stayed for 2 nights including New Year's Eve had a great time had lunch dinner and a party buffet and the food in each case was extremely good. The staff were friendly and helpful. An all round good quality country pub/hotel that I would have no hesitation in recommending.

We stayed for a nearby wedding so we didn't eat at the hotel or do any sightseeing but we are considering returning to spend more time in the area. Our room was number 8 and was very spacious with a lovely view and the bed... More

For the price of the stay you would expect more. Very costly food and small portions, room was ok but not greatly decorated, cheap pictures on walls, bed not comfortable. It stated free parking but no space left on arrival and the wifi just logged you out so could not make contact with anybody. You would expect to be offered... More

We sat next to the fire and enjoyed two courses of delicious food and some great drinks. Dog friendly and with charming staff, the experience... More

We spent a night at this hotel en route to Gatwick .Check in was very quick and we were shown to our room (7) which was spacious with lovely bedding and big fluffy towels , but the furniture was a little tired . We went into the bar where the tables were a little dirty but we think they had... More

You can tell many things about a place when you turn up to a set menu especially heading towards Christmas. Well this told me I must come back and order off the normal one.Fifty plus guests and not one bad portion. All served hot and quickly. Great portion size and nice range of wines. Lovely old coaching type inn with... More
