A cold winters day so popped in for a hot meal, what’s disappointment . Jacket potato: leather skin, grey and cold inside. Took 15% off bill. Would rather have had a hot lunch. No heating in restaurant, indifferent service.

Hi, Foxglove is a lovely super king or twin room. In the stables, it holds a view of the garden patio. It has all the amenities you would expect including a tv. Hope that helps and we will see you soon
