As a family we have quite often dined at the Buckerell. Lodge as it is close to my parents. The staff are always very accommodating and attentive towards my parents. The quality of the food is always high. The menu tends to lean to good quality traditional food which they achieve. Overall it's a very pleasant traditional establishment

Bedrooms are comfortable, clean, and have everything you need. Breakfast good, and we are in...
