The hotel is smart and stylish with an idyllic garden frontage. The restaurant is pretty low key. Service was slightly hit and miss. The food was excellent in parts. There's a good wine list but very limited choice by the glass.

My partner and I came here on Sunday evening, the first day of a week-long holiday staying in a nearby village. We intended to eat at the village pub but they didn't serve evening meals - so we started from a position of being grateful to be able to eat anything at all. My mother who recommended it had called... More

We were booked to have lunch in the bar/lounge to accommodate Dougal (Labrador) but the weather was so nice that we asked to eat in the garden. The staff could not have been more obliging. A good sized table for the six of us and a large umbrella for shade. Service was excellent throughout including a bowl of water for... More

We were taken here by friends on a recent visit to this part of the world. Firstly the decor of the hotel is bizarre. I do note that it markets itself as a 'boutique' hotel, but it was like nothing I have ever seen, or want to see again. Thankfully the restaurant was a lot more subdued. We were kept... More

We enjoyed our recent meals at the restaurant Taste@Strattons.For dinner, rhubarb cordial and process cocktails were a refreshing way to begin our meal. Our asparagus starter was delicious--the farm fresh local speciality asparagus with artfully poached free range egg and the subtle garlic flavouring in the hollandaise-type sauce. We appreciated that our choice of pinot noir was opened and placed... More

Very quircky hotel but very friendly staff. Each bedroom has its own character but very comfy beds and very clean.

Spent a Saturday evening in the restaurant joined by my mother and sister for an intriguing food experience. The table had been booked in advance with the restaurant being informed one of the party has an allergy to yeast. Interestingly, when we had arrived and been seated the waitress fetched the table some bread rolls and butter informing us that... More

We booked and ate Sunday Lunch at Strattons yesterday and really it was a disappointment. The dining room looked amazing, white linen, beautiful glasses and silver cutlery(mis-matched like the staffs attire). Between the four of us we chose two roasts of the day, beef, slow cooked pork and sea bream. We were offered and ate a small warm roll each... More

Dear Reader how 'disappointing and beyond personal' to read in the opening sentence of a review "silver cutlery, mis-matched like the staffs attire". The cutlery is antique silver and different deliberately so. Megan who served this customer, like all our staff is not in uniform but well dressed in line with a dress code. Heaven help the day we do... More

My wife and I visited this cafe for brunch and were quite disappointed. The coffee was nice although it took almost 15mins to be able to order from table service. The cafe was not busy either. Once we had ordered coffee and cake it then took another 20mins for the coffee to arrive and a further 5mins with prompting for... More

Dear Reader this is a perplexing report as there are a number of things which just simply do not ring as accurate. For example all our cakes are served with Creme Fraiche and we don't ask a customer if they want it it is standard in line with our commitment to give something extra. The cake therefore would have arrived... More
