We were walking on the Ridgeway on a very wet day and were very warmly welcomed when we arrived. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. The rooms were clean and freshly painted and very comfortable and we had a very good evening meal and breakfast. Good luck to the new landlords.

We were visiting the local National Trust property and needed a meal locally. The young lady serving us couldn't have been more attentive and the food was excellent, not your 'normal' pub boil in the bag serving!
