Bodkin House Hotel

We made a Sunday lunch booking for 5 including our elderly parents and our 5 year old daughter. From the booking right through to the service on the day and the food, we had an excellent experience. The Bodkin team were very helpful in offering us a table suitable for my elderly rellies and couldn't have been more attentive and patient.

The food was lovely. We had a traditional beef roast. Top yorkshire puds, veg done perfectly and roasties that were beautifully crispy. Puddings were generous and delicious too as was the coffee.

They do a great pint too and the bar area is cosy and inviting with a superb log fire.

Overall, couldn't recommend more highly. The Bodkin team really made the effort to make us welcome and are thoroughly praise worthy. We'll be back!

We ate here last night to try the fish & chips which is a special selling for £17 for two plus two drinks! Our local pub does a similar offer but it's not a patch on this, I think the offer runs until the end of Jan so hurry and try it soon. It was absolutely excellent and we could not fault either the quality or quantity. This was proper simple food cooked to perfection; it even came with homemade tartare sauce. Apparently the chef is new here, let’s hope they keep him forever, I tried to leave my husband behind so I could take him home!!!
Both the waitress and both staff were friendly and faultless; I want to go back already

I did not stay on this occasion but sat for a very enjoyable Christmas dinner. Arrived early and welcomed with a glass of champagne, escorted to the well presented dinning room after placing our orders. Wine was chosen and the first course arrived. About 30 people were present. The pace was relaxed and the young girls serving did an excellent job. Main course and wine was served all very very nice. Now stuffed time was given for the food to sink and afew more drinks along with the cracker pulling. Sweet was also good. Then a little bit of fun with a general knowledge quiz..... Never could remember all the reindeers names. First prize a complementary meal for 4 people. Time for cheese and a glass of port followed by mince pies and coffee in the lounge. Very enjoyable and no washing up.

Wow! What a day! Thank you so much Don & Eileen and your very attentive and helpful staff who made our day so special! From beginning to end the day was perfect and the attention to detail was second to none, your staff are certainly a credit to you. You totally re-arranged your newly decorated dining room to suit our needs and requests and delivered everything that we asked for and more. Our guests were very impressed with the venue, service and especially the food. We will certainly return and recommend you to other friends and family!

A building of distinction with such a warm welcome from oner proprioters Don and Eileen. The main building is of historic significance. This 17th century coaching inn was mentioned in the novel 'Northanger Abbey' by Jane Austen. Rooms offer a blend of country traditions with modern en suite facilities. With amazing landscaped gardens you can relax under the cooling shsde of trees or sit soaking up the eveving sun, sipping your favourite drink. The food from the restaurant is forever being updated and has a chef who likes a bit of originality when it comes to some dishes and others a traditional home cooked feel to them. As the winter nights set in you can also sit by the welcoming log fire in what now is the bar but many moons ago was the houses main kitchen.

Stayed with work in this lovely old hotel. The bar area with fantastic open log fire was superb. The food was excellent and the owners very friendly. The rooms were cosy, clean and comfortable. The breakfast room too was lovely. If I am passing this way again, I'll book in!
