We visited the cottage for the weekend to celebrate my Wife's birthday. We were welcomed on arrival and the rooms were clean and well equipped. We dined in the cottage on both nights. On the Friday it was very busy with diners all night, this created a lovely atmosphere and despite being busy all the staff were very attentive with... More

I had heard so many lovely things from friends about the cottage of content. My partner and I were exited to try it ourselves. We pulled up to the beautiful, quaint pub and our high expectations were instantly met just stepping inside. The evening began well and the food was wonderful, but the entire evening was ruined for me by... More

It is normally our policy not to respond to our TripAdvisor reviews, as we like it to be an independent testament to our happy customers without us getting involved, but in this case we were so puzzled and concerned by the comments above that a full reply was necessary.

Visited in the evening after a very positive recommendation.Not easy to access with narrow country lanes and tracks, often one way. But the experience eating quality food makes up for the nightmare drive. Highest quality of food, an excellent rustic ambience, good wine and a lively pub. Perhaps lunch is a better option because of difficult access.

If you are looking for somewhere to go in a beautiful setting to enjoy really good food, beautifully presented and piping hot and in a cosy cottage this is the place for you. We visited through a Travelzoo offer and thoroughly enjoyed our three course meal with wine. There was a lovely log fire burning which added to the relaxed... More

We found the Cottage of Content through a Travelzoo offer and as it was about an hour away, thought we would treat ourselves. We have had a super night, fabulous food, lovely room and a real 'find'. The owners were so welcoming and nice and nothing was too much trouble. Now we have experienced this beautiful pub, we will definitely... More

Stayed here last night on a Travelzoo deal. Fantastic little pub, food was excellent both for lunch and dinner. Freshly cooked breakfast. Rooms lovely, clean and warm. Hosts were brilliant, we unfortunately left our washbag at home but Helen kindly provided us with face wipes, toothpaste and brush, deodorant and moisturiser (thanks). I loved the Earl grey pannacotta. Eleanor the... More

We visited the Cottage for supper on a website deal. What a find! 3 courses and a large glass of wine for under £20. They really should be charging at least double for the quality of food. All beautifully presented and tasty, pretty salmon roulade, succulent pork and lamb and attractive desserts. We couldn't fault it. Even the large glass... More

I took a deal from travelzoo for 3 course meal for 2 and a large glass of wine for £39, brilliant value for this fine place, which I think had just reopened as I couldn't get through the week before, maybe refurbishing or something. Arrived a bit early so we sat by the log fire and had a couple of... More

We visit as a couple or a family every couple of months, and the experience is never anything short of superb! Sunday roasts are amazing, the meats are superb with a great range of delicious local, fresh veg. Friday night tapas is very good from 5:30-7 for the early start for evening meal. The menu for the rest of the... More
