Yet again another warm welcome and excellent service from the hosts Nicky and Philip. For several years we've made a reservation for an evening meal in June to celebrate 'young' Gerry's birthday. The food at this restaurant is superb, always freshly cooked and well presented. This year our normal small party of four increased to eleven, our evening ran smoothly... More

Excellent service, food was absolutely wonderful, the room was comfortable. Philip and Nicky were excellent hosts and made us very welcome. We found the location very good for trips out to National Trust properties and visits to the coast. We will be returning next year.

We stayed one night as part of my husbands birthday celebrations. Imagine staying at a really good hotel, with an excellent restaurant, but staying with your very good friends who look after you and make your stay very special. That is what we experienced. The attention to detail was wonderful throughout the hotel and restaurant. It was the first time... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the hotel. The food was excellent, both breakfast and evening meal.Everything was cooked fresh and we took advantage of the discount given for two nights bed, breakfast and evening meal. The room was very comfortable and of a high standard. The proprietors were very friendly and helpful. When we return to the area... More

Extremely helpful when organising a pre wedding family dinner for our daughter and an excellent choice of venue for family to stay together over wedding weekend. The beds are amazingly comfortable too so a good night's sleep too!

We stayed at this hotel because of a family wedding near by. As a family we all had dinner here on the Friday night and stayed for 2 nights. The food was delicious, the service was fantastic and the rooms were clean and tidy. I would definitely stay here again. The owners went out of their way to make us... More

We had stayed a night for B&B earlier in the year and were impressed by the friendly hosts Philip and Nicky and their attention to detail. We also learned during our stay that they cater for private functions. We booked a celebration meal for my mothers 83rd birthday for the 1st May 2016. Our hosts were organised and prompt communicating... More
