We went down to the country to meet with old school chums I had not seen in 45 years.
Very warm welcome & reception from the staff.
We were booked into a wonderful large room, with an equally large bathroom - complete with modern shower and a claw foot bath tub!
We then went down had drinks with our friends, and then all trooped into dinner. The service was magnificent - and the food was inventive and delicious. Good value was well.
My wife then went and found some local ladies in the bar having a night out without their husbands and kids - and so that involved us staying up much later!!
Breakfast next morning was the "full English" and was the best we ate during our trip.
Go and visit this inn - you will not be disappointed!
