Overnight stay in this country pub with excellent walking in the local area. On arrival the staff were welcoming and very pleasant and the room was ready so we were able to check in early. We stayed in room 1 and paid extra for a jacuzzi bath. Unfortunately there was nothing to indicate in the room info or anywhere in the room that there was a switch outside the bathroom and consequently we assumed the jacuzzi was not working - disappointing after a long walk with tired muscles. The wi fi signal was poor in the room, but fine in the bar. The room was clean and comfortable and nicely decorated.
We had booked dinner in the grill room which was not as busy as the bar area and although the service was a little slow, the chateaubriand was worth the wait and every penny. Beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. After complaining about the Jacuzzi, we were offered a complimentary liqueur from the extensive range provided. This is a must for liqueur and cognac lovers. We retired to the bar area which had a pleasant atmosphere and was comfortable.
Breakfast was a little let down by the service. Although there were only 3 couples being served at the time, after quite a wait, we had to ask for coffee and toast rather than it being offered which is the norm on being seated in most hotels. There was no menu to indicate what could be ordered for breakfast so again after asking, my hubby ordered the full English which arrived without the promised black pudding.
This was a very pleasant stay, with excellent food and lovely helpful staff, let down by little things that could easily be remedied. Would definitely return and hopefully a few minor tweaks will make this an excellent choice for a weekend break.
