Superb evening; delicious food beautifully presented, a feast for soul and body. Delicious fish soup, light yet full of such different flavours, crab wonderful. Attentive staff but not overly so, what's not to like? Look forward to visiting again!

I took my wife here for a treat and a treat it was, very clean very Beautiful location, building, rooms and food was out of this World. The staff very friendly and I would make this a 5 stars accommodation and food. A great stay. One problem. Don't use a satnav to find it. We went down every country lane... More

Beautiful location, building, rooms and food. The aforementioned alone would be worth 5 stars - clearly this is where they focus their efforts and it certainly shows. Sadly, however, it's really let down by the front of house. We stayed here as part of a wedding party, between us we had all of the rooms booked for two nights. Through... More

Stayed for one night and had dinner. The welcome is a little formulaic, difficult to put a finger on it exactly, but I can understand some of the negative reviews. This could however be the reaction of a shy person, trying hard to be pleasant. However overall the bedroom was spotless, nicely decorated. Could possibly have had two large bath... More

Very clean and nicely decorated. We decided to stay one night and choose the room at the back away from the road thinking it would be quiet . Bedtime, there was this drone noise and we assumed it was the extractor fan from kitchen... it clicked off 4.30am and clicked back on 7.00 ish . Also mattress was very uncomfortable.... More

Often when you go back again to place it doesn't seem as good as the first time?? This place certainly doesn't disappoint!. We visited and stayed again after two years and could not have been more satisfied. Very friendly welcome. Refreshed décor,very clean and comfortable.Probably the best dinner I've had since last visit.Great breakfast as well. Surprised by other reviews... More

Went here Friday evening for food not staying here... with intrepidation as some reviews said this is not dog friendly. The lady here is a little brusque but genuinely I think she wants to maintain a good service without anyone's enjoyment being disturbed and from my experience I think that she tells all kids/dogs/parents and owners to behave!!!!

What a strange place!! A pub that has been turned into a restaurant/pub with a great chef but with a wife/front of house, with no inter-personal skils at all! She is bruske, unattentative and generally a dead loss but the food and chef are excellent. This is fairly expensive for what it does but I was told that the chef... More

We stayed just one night when attending a party nearby. The room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom also clean and recently refurbished, but could have done with a few hooks to hand dressing gowns. I'd been warned by other reviews so brought my own fruit to have at breakfast, but, for £90 including VAT, thought it was all very reasonable.

Room was clean and cosy. Bathroom spotless, nice and bright. No coffee in room but plenty of different types of tea. Owners will happily serve you coffee in the bar to take to room during opening hours. Bonus of being dog friendly. Full English breakfast available which we had on the first day..mushrooms cooked in olive oil prefer mine in... More
