Sunday's hot sunny weather called for a cold one in a pub garden and this one is amazing. Great views over lush green farmland. Food is lovely too. They also have live music some days, we particularly like going when Gracie is singing. Looking forward to many more summer afternoons.

We had originally booked into the Duke William for one night as the next day we had early meetings in the area and just wanted someplace local to rest our heads. We got SO much more! The place is absolutely stunning, a lovely pub with beautifully restored rooms upstairs. The breakfast was exceptional, you could really taste that the ingredients...

We had a delicious meal, the variety and portion size both spot on, the staff were helpful, cheerful and enthusiastic. The decor and ambiance are perfect in this lovely pub in a beautiful village. Well worth a visit!

This would have been a 5* evening. Stunning village, lovely pub, fabulous food, great atmosphere. Busy, lively pub on a Monday evening. The restaurant was clean but the cleanliness of the toilets ruined the evening! Such a shame.

Stayed for my wife's birthday. The food is great (separate review done) but the hotel is sadly disappointing. Room was nice but dark with lighting that felt like an interrogation. The problem is that it lacked the sort of things to expect for what is a relatively expensive stay. No kettle so had to use the nespresso machine (not hot...
