A lovely room with a four poster bed overlooking the green. The food was well cooked and delicious, as a vegetarian I had a decent choice. The main point for me has got to be the staff. So polished and professional. They made a bar and restaurant full of strangers like being among old friends. Cannot wait to return.

Thank you for taking the trouble to leave a review. Our main building is several hundred years old and we do have some areas where the beams have settled over the centuries. WiFi can be patchy in one or two of the bedrooms depending on the devices being used, mainly due to the thickness of some of the walls, but... More

We had called in at the pub the night before our meal for a drink they were very busy and there was a good atmosphere so booked for the following evening.
