My wife and I were walking the Ridgeway in a heat wave! We encountered a very warm welcome and extremely helpful and friendly staff. The room was spacious and comfortable.
There was a good choice on the evening dinner menu. The food was tasty and good value
and the surroundings pleasant. Our breakfast in the morning was equally delicious and set us up for our day's walking.
The landlord then offered us a lift back on the Ridgeway which we gladly accepted. We rather regretted we hadn't ordered a pack lunch as the ones prepared for other guests looked really appetising.
