We stayed at The Bishop's Table for three nights at the beginning of June 2012 and, having read previous reviews, were pleased that it was not the unpleasant experience we were fearing.
We used the hotel as a base for a family wedding in the area and found it perfectly adequate for this purpose. Our party stayed in rooms 3, 4 and 5 and they were clean and comfortable, although I would comment that the pillows in our room (3) were terrible - only one miserably thin and cheap effort each.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast quite good, although a proper fresh fruit salad would have made the continental breakfast bettter value and the coffee was poor.
There was a nice garden at the back and I wondered what it was used for as the hotel seemed under-used. The bar, although smart, was OK for a quick drink before going out, but it was expensive and not somewhere I would spend an evening.
As a base, this hotel is fine.
