Check in is informal, quirky and quite fun. The rooms - chalets, spread down a small slope - are named after flowers. Ordinarily I'd find that a bit kitsch, but it kind of works. The rooms are comfortable and big enough. The pub is sensational, well decorated and embraces its heritage. Food stunning, something out of Masterchef cooked to absolute...

We have been revisiting this lovely pub for over 10 years now, and it's just fantastic. We experienced a little problem with regards to the ladies toilets, no water to wash your hands and no dryer either after washing them with a bottle of fresh water we had on us. So the reason it's still 5 star is because it...

Just returned from a one night stay at this lovely old pub. The rooms are in the grounds to the rear of the property, all well equipped with modern facilities. There was a small issue with the tv not working which was dealt with swiftly and professionally by the excellent general manager. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast during our...

The accommodation at the black horse is in a series of wooden cabins behind the inn. These are comfortable and quiet, well decorated and very clean. For us, visiting from Finnish Lapland, wooden cottages are like a home from home and a very pleasant surprise. The food in the inn is excellent quality with a wide ranging menu and there...

I have just celebrated a major birthday in the Pilgrim Suit together with 27 guests and I cannot thank the staff enough for making it a most memorable occasion. We met with the chef a few weeks before and selected a good choice of menus for our guests to select prior to the day together with really nice wines. They...

Revisited the black horse inn over the easter weekend with my family and it was as wonderful as when I went there previously. Having a young child I don't get the opportunity to dine out much these days but the staff were very welcoming as you arrive in the bar area and the food was delicious. A few changes to...

Stayed here with my partner and 10 month old. What a lovely place, very quaint. It's like a warren inside with lots of little rooms...i did get lost a few times. The staff were helpful and friendly and we had our table set out for breakfast every morning with the highchair which we thought was a lovely touch. The atmosphere...
