My wife and I went for lunch for the four course taster menu (it was a good deal on Groupon). Upon arrival there were no other customers there, although it was midweek. This was the case throughout the meal. Service was good. The hotel and grounds were stunning. The food was delicious and appeared to be locally sourced. One small... More

We started off with a G & T in the bar then we were taken through to the conservatory for lunch by Sally who was excellent from beginning to end of our meal. It was a four course taster menu - it looked lovely and tasted even better. The summer vegetables served with the chicken dish were cooked to perfection... More

My husband and I treated ourselves to the Groupon 4 course tasting menu offer. The food was extremely tasty and beautifully presented and the service was first class. This is a beautiful location and the orangery where we ate was lovely and light. Will definitely return

The hotel is a little hard to find but is a absolute gem when you get there. The gardens are stunning and the river adds to the tranquillity of the place. The bedrooms are all of a very good standard especially the bathrooms, it could do with alittle TLC in places but good value for money. The outstanding thing about... More

My wife and I stayed at this Hotel while visiting our son who lives a few miles away. The Hotel is just a mile or so off the A38 but there is no noise of light pollution. A grand old country house now used as a Hotel. We had upgraded to a superior room but it was still excellent value... More

Yesterday I met up with a friend for lunch. We were warmly welcomed and directed into the lounge area where we sat in comfort to peruse the menu, have a chat, a pre luncheon drink and enjoy the lovely garden views from the windows. We were taken to the conservatory and seated at a table, beautifully set. We selected the... More

I booked for two nights as I was attending a wedding. The room and bathroom were absolutely fantastic....large, high ceiling and fab space. Even the bathroom was worth a party in with bath and shower....the gardens were not too large and enjoyable to walk in and scenic...with a stream/river within walkable distance. Decor is in keeping with the rest of... More
