The rooms are sumptuous and the service flawless. We also really enjoyed the food! It’s probably just not the place to go it you’re an animal-loving vegetarian! Friends bought us a voucher as a wedding present and we loved the country-house feeling, until a party...More

Inn at Whitewall, serves exceptional food in an exceptional location. As with other reviewers the fish pie (and Beer) is excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive. Only issue is you need a good satnav to find the place.
