My wife and I stayed here five nights, mid-August 2012, while I attended the four-afternoon Bread Baking school at King Arthur Flour in Norwich (great fun!). We enjoyed our stay very much and would happily return. Our room, #11, with a sloping wooden floor, was clean and comfortable and had two bathrooms. Also a very old rather noisy wall A/C.
If your grandparents liked their visit here sixty years ago, they would be pleased now; nothing has been changed. The furnishings and the decor are the originals and the upstairs windows have not been washed since. The public area is cluttered with old comfortable furniture.The owners have not spent a dime on upgrades in all those years. This is not a complaint. If you like an old-fashioned environment, this is the place. Relaix & Chateau it ain't!
Most notable was the friendliness of the entire staff, all anxious to please. The restaurant, however, is outstanding. We enjoyed all four nights there, not seeing any reason to try other recommended restaurants in the area until we had completed the menu. The duck was the best I have ever tasted. Preparation is a two-day process: roast the first day and completely debone. Truss up, glaze, and re-roast the second day to serve. Superb! I had it twice! The wine list is very good and is very reasonably priced, although you will not find any first-name California or French wines on the carte.Try the Ex Umbria Syrah, a beautiful bottle.
