I have visited this hotel over the last three years, mainly for meals, but did also stay in the suite in March 2007. The food and service is excellent (aside from one receptionist who is a bit abrupt). The food is freshly cooked to order and uses locally sourced ingredients such as Goosnargh chicken. For us the best things are the mains and desserts. The location is lovely with beautiful views from the dining areas and back bedrooms over the river and valley.
The log fires and many pictures give a lovely atmosphere. When we stayed overnight we could have done with a set of steps to climb into the enormous, high bed! Each bedroom is decorated differently and that adds to the character of this ancient Inn.
If you want a relaxing stay in a quiet area with lots of good walking, and I assume fishing for those interested, book here! I would advise those going for meals to get there early especially at weekends for it gets very busy, and they don't reserve tables, unless its in the dining room. We had one meal in the formal dining room (aside from breakfast which was also served there), and whilst it was very good, we prefer the more relaxed atmosphere of the bar (several rooms) area - which is less expensive. We want to go back.
