We have just returned from a very enjoyable weekend at the Tennant Arms - it was our first visit, so we have no opinion about the previous management and can't make a comparison. All we can say is that the four-poster room ('Wharfedale') was very comfortable indeed with a superb bathroom and that it was very quiet in spite of the fact that it is at the front of the hotel and overlooks the road.
We found the staff very friendly and helpful throughout. They were dealing with a large party of walkers over the weekend which meant that service was a bit slow and we had to dine in a pleasant corner of the bar but this was not really a problem as the staff let us know what the delay would be and did their best to keep us happy. The food was good and it was nice to find a chef who knows how to cook vegetables (ie not boiled to death). The only niggle was that the chips could have done with a bit longer in the pan - my wife's medium rare steak was exactly right. The menu isn't particularly adventurous but the quality is good, the price is reasonable and the portions are generous - quite rightly geared to the needs of walkers and fishermen!
Breakfast (cooked to order) was fine.
We were very satisfied with our visit and will very likely return.
