“Warm friendly and very good food”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

The Colstreamer delivered in all areas. Excellent value for money and great service with outstanding food. All the food we had was made on the premises from the bread to the chutney.
The menu is very good but not huge. There is innovation and creativity demonstrating real passion for high quality food.
Room was clean good hospitality tray with real milk for teas and coffees with a bodum for your coffee. Excellent.

Breakfast was great good flavours with all ingredients sourced very locally.

The star of this place is the food, whatever you do stay in for dinner. The rooms are perfectly OK clean and with nice comfy beds, but not special. However,the quiet location across from the church,the attentive service and gorgeous food at both dinner and breakfast is what makes this a definite to return to.

We stayed for three nights just after Easter and would definitely return. Dinner and breakfast were delicious, our room was most comfortable and well presented and the staff were friendly and helpful.

The chiming of the church clock just added to the pub's charm.
Thanks to all concerned for making our stay so enjoyable.

Our second stay at the Coldstreamer and it was just as good as the first. Visiting my mum in Gulval and the Coldstreamer is just around the corner from her. We were in the same room as last time, great shower and the best thing is the "large" bath towels that actually go around you and dont leave a part exposed.....

Clean, comfortable, with great breakfast. Dinner was excellent and the staff are just right - not too in your face but there if you need them.

Need to book dinner though as it gets busy now.

This was the third time we have stayed at the cold streamer, and we will definitely go back again.

So far we've only stayed in the autumn and winter. We always seem to end up in the same room! But I had a peak in another and it looks good too. Rooms are nicely decorated, comfy but not homogenous chain hotel style. They're nice quality rooms above a pub. Clean and warm, nice ensuites with powerful showers.

The breakfast is simply DELICIOUS! With local produce (sausages, bacon, apple juice etc)

The evening meals get a massive thumbs up from us, and even the bar snacks were so morish we ordered more. There's local ales and cider on tap, and a roaring wood burner to warm up next to. They're dog friendly too, although our pooch hasn't yet had the pleasure of joining us.

The front of house and kitchen are really friendly and professional and go out of their way to be helpful. We love the Coldstreamer, and think its brilliant value for money especially given the high quality of service and food.

(Only downside: The village church bell can get a bit annoying!)

Whilst on business, I chose to stay and eat at the Coldstreamer - purely because it was the most local accommodation to my meeting the following day. After a long journey, I checked in, was shown to my clean and comfortable room and eventually ventured down to eat. The menu was select but all sounded nice. The hake with home made tagliatelle, fennel, and crab and shrimp bisque was absolutely stunning. The service was prompt and professionally administered and the cost was very competitive. I hope I get the opportunity to stay and eat there again.
