Remember to book here- it's really popular! Really friendly staff and great service. Good menu choice and the Sunday roasts are yum but sadly only small portion of crackling which is the best bit! Puds are yum and great coffee. 6 of us and were a bit squashed on the table and three meals came out long before the other...

The room was well equipped, very clean and the staff were both lovely and helpful. The food was excellent and service was quick and efficient. It was reassuring to meet a friendly reception from local people who...

Superb pub with rooms and totally dog friendly. The evening bar food was enjoyed by all and breakfast ( especially the scrambled eggs) was fantastic. Friendly staff , lovely rooms - hope to visit again.

Here's the email I sent to the Hollow Bottom 5 days ago. No response as yet. Hello My husband and I stayed with you on Saturday 25 February in the room Mrs Muck.

It's always really tricky to respond to such a "review" when there are so many "issues", some valid, some not and some just pure conjecture. To anyone planning to stay with us please once again note the following statement direct from our website (3 of the rooms are directly above our bar area, and although we’ve installed acoustic noise reduction...

Writing this at midnight on a Thursday. The pub is still open with people shouting, singing, barking like dogs and howling! It sounds like they are all actually in my bedroom! Rang down at 11.40pm to ask if the pub would be closing soon and was told that she was locking up now. 25 minutes later and still no sign...

Thanks Maria and I am sorry that your 2nd night with us was a noisy one. Our sole aim for all of our customers is that they leave The Hollow Bottom having had a really enjoyable experience.

A great pub with the benefit of having some rooms both in the main building and round the back owned by a neighbour and rented through the pub. We stayed in the garden studio which was small but well equipped. Pets are accepted at this hotel and this studio is good with direct access to a garden, however note the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hollow Bottom is a beautiful, traditional 17th Century Inn. Recently refurbished to blend the rustic with the contemporary. We have 4 letting rooms, 3 above the bar area and 1 outside near the rear garden. The Hollow Bottom is a bustling, busy country pub and restaurant and therefore noise can be heard in all the bedrooms on occasions despite the heavy acoustic underlay. It is a great place to visit for a unique atmosphere in the most beautiful village in the world. Come and see for yourselves! ... more   less
