4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed for 2 nights and ate in the restaurant both evenings. First off, Nicky and Phil are fantastic hosts and nothing seems to be too much trouble. You simply could not ask for a nicer couple running the hotel. They have great local knowledge which is a boon if you don’t know the area. Phil’s pub recommendation was spot-on!... More

I only stayed one night but the couple who run The Olde Forge were really accommodating. I needed to check in earlier than normal and then was going to be back late. They made sure I had everything I needed. The room was clean, tidy with everything I needed. Couldn't ask for more. Many thanks!

Comfortable hotel with very friendly and helpful proprietors. The food served at breakfast was fresh and cooked perfectly. The dinner menu looked very appealing although we were already going out to a party so did not partake.

Stayed here for two nights on family business - rather last minute arrangements but hosts very accommodating. Very comfortable room - sadly had no time to sample the breakfast. Would definitely stay here again

However the reviews were good so we decided to give it a go. We are very glad we did. We booked for Sunday 3rd until 8th July and booked in for two evening... More

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.
