Decor and furniture in room outstanding, one concern was could have done with a rail in bathroom, 3 foot drop from top of stairs landing to bathroom floor, not suitable for elderly people. However the bathroom once you were in it definitely had a wow factor.

We called in last night to enjoy a relaxed evening meal. We started with a relaxed drink in the bar area where we ordered our meal and chatted u till our meal was ready. We went through to the restaurant which was nicely presented in a traditional country hotel way. Food was beaytifully cooked and very tasty. I went for... More

There seem to be plenty of reviews about how great the food is here, and they're all correct. We had lunch this past weekend and it was really delicious - great staff, very well presented, and given the quality, great value. But we also stayed overnight at short notice as we were attending a wedding nearby and it couldn't have... More

We called in on the off chance we might get a table for lunch. The place was busy but we were able to eat. We sat in the restuarant and had a two course lunch with my husband having a steak and myself having salmon with sea trout. There was a small wait for food but as they were unexpectedly... More

My husband and I went for Sunday Lunch at the Fox & Hounds on 1st Feb and all I can say is that if this restaurant was near where I lived I would be going there at least once a week - I thought it was one of the best 3 course lunches I have ever had - made the... More

This place is lovely. Recently refurbished and just gorgeous throughout. Lovely bar area with a log fire, comfortable armchairs, sofas and friendly staff. Also there is a great little library area if you fancy a quiet drink. The restaurant is EXCELLENT! I have eaten here a few times now and have never been disappointed. If you want a lovely meal...

I remember this place from many years ago when it was an old fashioned village pub. I hate to think how much the new owners have spent on refurbishing the building, but all I can say is that it was most certainly worth it. The ambiance is excellent and to walk into the intimate and cosy bar with its comfortable... More

We came in for a light lunch. Beautiful place and food was excellent, however it would have been more fitting to have it in the pub area than the restaurant (and we had the strong sense that the staff would have preferred that too). Unfortunately the pub only has a couple of small tables, that were occupied, and the rest... More

Some of the other reviews of this hotel have described the ambience of the rooms as shabby chic; personally I would just call them shabby and in need of a good makeover, starting with a coat of paint. My room was very small, with hardly enough space to open my suitcase let alone sit anywhere except on the bed. Partly... More
