We had a lovely night out here, with a meal, bed and breakfast. The food, especially the scallops were delicious and the service was attentive. The room was really nice, with a cafetière, and really good shower.

We went here early evening for a meal with our son on his birthday. We were met with a very pleasant waitress who immediately asked if we wanted table water. We had their bread & olives to share which was really nice. Main courses were fish & chips & vegetarian vegetable pie. All very good. Chips were a bit salty...

Whilst there was an issue with hot water, the resolution was more than satisfactory. The manager Martin was excellent, and his team very friendly and professional. The room was stylish, clean, tidy. All you need. The breakfast was lovely. All I all a great stay. Thanks

The Ox Cheek starter I had was absolutely amazing! No one else on our table of 14 ordered it and it got me wondering if people overlook a starter that sounds like this on paper.....just a thought..... but as soon as I saw that it was slow cooked for 5 hours I knew it would be special!

Stayed here with friends, was a fab weekend, the staff were so welcoming and the room we had was perfect for what we paid!
