Stayed at the Willow House for 2 nights in August. Very comfortable large room. Food was very good in the Restaurant and we joined in with the local pub quiz. Staff were very friendly and they offered gluten free options for my wife.

The accommodations was very pleasant, clean and sufficiently roomy. The evening meal was fairly standard to be honest but breakfast was good and served by the chef/owner who was friendly and helpful. We would happily stay here again.
