Other reviews say all there is about the view from the bar and restaurant - it is lovely. And the walks along Lathkil Dale are great as well. Combine the view, walks and a good selection of beers at the bar, and a good fire in winter, and there is a good reason to visit.
The food, however, is a little disappointing - not bad, but rather average. The dining room is also lacking in character and so you probably would not plan a visit for a special meal, were it not for the view, walks and beer...!

It's not all about looking out of the window. The wet and windy day we had dinner, the pub lacked atmosphere and any sort of warm welcome. The food was okay (small-ish portions) but the restaurant was a little sterile - intermittent background music meant that people were conscious of being overheard. The dividing curtain did the job of covering a messy area....until you needed the loo and had to walk through it all! The experience of hotel guests may be better, but if you are self-catering in the village, be warned that you only have one eating-out option.

I will definitely be staying at this hotel again. The room was clean & had plenty of tea, coffee, hot choc & biscuits. Also well stocked mini bar. The bar area is lovely to sit & look out at the views whilst enjoying a nice chilled glass of rose. 5 different real ales available. Food was delicious with a good selection and good value

Room Tip: Rooms 1 & 2 have the best view looking out across Lathkil Dale

Been to Lathkil,a few times in the past,and always made the effort to pop down to the Lathkil Hotel for a pint.
booked a night stay, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay...check in around 2.30pm, then down to the bar, for 3 or 4 pints, followed by a lovely evening meal...room was lovely and warm,and we had a good night sleep.
Breakfast was very good and filling....staff excellent.
Will be back.....In the summer months fingers crossed

Stayed for four nights on a walking holiday. The bar was brilliant with five real ales, a roaring fire and good company. I talked to different people each night, both locals and visitors (and they talked back to me). The food was excellent with a good selection, both in the restaurant and in the bar. The breakfast are amazing and the view from the restaurant is stunning. The bedroom was perfectly presented with a good bed and bedding and a brand new en-suite shower room. The area is superb for walking - assuming you get the right weather - I had a combination of fog, sleat and snow. Even with those problems, I still found at least one walk a day, averaging seven or eight miles a day. I have left the best until last - the staff, from the owners on down. Nothing is too much trouble and it is always done with a genuine smile - 100% A1.

We have stayed here regularly over the past few years. The view from the front of the hotel must rate as one of the best in England. The rooms are smallish but spotlessly clean and well organised. The bar is unspoiled, cosy (real fire!) with a great range of real ales. Food is good and excellent value. We are vegetarian and there is always a choice on the menu and we are asked if we are eating in regularly so they can provide us with further choices - excellent service! The owners and staff are friendly and helpful. What more could anyone want!

Room Tip: The two rooms at the front (1 and 2) have the fantastic view.
