Met up with a group of good friends for dinner here. Had a few beers in the bar then adjourned to the dining room for dinner. I had the duck and my daughter had the pigeon. Both were wonderful; beautifully prepared, highly flavorful and quite filling. Service was top notch

Good hotel attached to old village inn. Excellent food. Some rooms are up some fairly steep stairs so not so good for elderly. Nice breakfast (cooked or continental). Horndon is a little village so not much going on if you are staying for a length of time.

Thank for taking the time to review us. We are so delighted you enjoyed your stay and food. We hope we will get to welcome you again in the near future. If we can help at all next time when you visit with a preference to room location please do let us know. We have a number of ground floor rooms that would remove the difficulty of the steep stairs.
