The Inn is in a very pretty village with an honesty library in the now defunct red phone box. The Inn is very comfortable and the eclectic mix of chairs and tables adds to the ambience which is relaxed. Our room (S Lloyd Stacey) is upstairs in the Inn. It is small but the bed was very comfortable and the rain shower was fantastic. Noise from diners downstairs (and in the upstairs private dining room) could be heard clearly until after midnight. Not a problem for us and it was a Friday night so you would expect the place to be busy.
The service was efficient but not very friendly. Staff were polite but not really interested in the clientele. Noisy clattering of crockery and cutlery in preparation for table settings the following day was a bit distracting at the end of our meal.
The food was delicious. Really nice flavours for both starters (ham terrine and a crab dish).
Main courses of duck and partridge were great. Robust flavours and a good wine list.
Lovely pannacotta but my husband's cheese was a bit cold. If I was in the area again I would definitely go to eat.
