Walked through a delightful courtyard into a tastefully renovated hotel. Made to feel very welcome in the bar whilst we chose our Sunday lunch. Restaurant was very nice and we had a delicious Sunday lunch of roast beef. Will definitely return in the future

As a lover of history, the Shaven Crown (as a grade 2* listed former monastical building) was a real treat for us. The building's age and structure sit well with contemporary understated styling and there is a relaxed and informal ambience which allows you to really enjoy the history of the place without feeling you are in a museum. We... More
