We booked in for the gourmet evening and overnight stay, and it was a lovely treat for us both. We approached the hotel down through the picturesque leafy lane and as we arrived, the frontage of the building, which dates back centuries didn`t disappoint. We were warmly welcomed by staff who were kind and thoughtful throughout our stay. The meal was a delightful mix of subtle and delicious flavours; I didn`t know I liked oxtail but chefs` oxtail and walnut ravioli was just divine, as was the whole menu. We retired to our beautiful room and woke to a frosty view towards the river. After a relaxing breakfast we left as the sunshine was just highlighting drifts of snowdrops on the grassy woodland banks.
