This beautiful and warm hotel managed to re-energise me after a long, working Monday, torrential rain and train delays from London! From the welcome to the decor - I felt like I'd come on a cosy winter holiday rather than a business trip! The staff are welcoming and friendly and the menu is extraordinary for a pub/hotel. Beautiful room and... More

We stopped overnight here and can thoroughly recommend this delightful pub and restaurant. The food was glorious, all handmade fare. Returning to the bar side afterwards to partake in some of the several hundred gins on offer we were joined by some of the staff and enjoyed their pleasant company.

Stayed here for 2 nights and ate in the restaurants both evenings. I had a single room, which was small, but nicely furnished and clean.
