Really good value alternative to the George. We needed a Sunday night over and tried to book the George well in advance but it was full. It was half the price at the Bull and good value for money. Service helpful and friendly. Breakfast excellent. Evening meal was unusual because we ate after the 6 -7 pm meal deal and found it a bit lonely on our own. Nevertheless the bream was fresh a nd tasty as was the soup for starter. Interesting history about the Bedlam club, which is now the restaurant. We had a front bedroom which was tasteful and ' antiquey' just a little noisy when the morning traffic got going. Parking in the courtyard may be challenging for those of a nervous disposition!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Once upon a time there was a drinking club at Burghley House. It was founded by The 5th Earl of Exeter in 1684 and it was called The Honourable Order of Little Bedlam. It had an eclectic bunch of members: The Baptist Earl of Gainsborough was known as Greyhound, The Hon Charles Bertie was The Stag and The Earl of Denbigh was Tyger amongst other nefarious characters. They would have drunk locally brewed ales, feasted on Burghley Estate and other local produce and created total bedlam. Things have a habit of coming round and we are delighted to invite you to dine on our local produce, sup our fine ales and obviously behave very, very well! ... more less
