Visited as group of 7 for a belated works' afternoon tea. We had originally booked for a Christmas date, but had to move the date and the hotel were very accommodating of this. The afternoon tea was lovely, beautiful fresh scones, clotted cream and jam, delightful dainty, tasty cakes and small sandwiches. Plenty to eat and all very nice. The... More

I booked the Lion and Pheasant for a Valentine's night meal at £45 a head, suffice to say that the price reflected the standard! On arrival we were sat next to the steps leading out from the bar, however we didn't have to raise our voices and were in front of a roaring fire! Warm bread and Amuse bouche of... More

Took my daughter for a cream tea treat for her birthday. Lovely freshly prepared sandwiches (she is veggie and still had a great choice) and the best scones I have tasted. Also a nice selection of cakes. Staff very friendly and attentive.

Went there for a lunchtime meal with some friends in early January - the service was attentive, the atmosphere was good, but the food was just OK. I had a burger, which was nice enough, served on a slice of wood - which would have been OK if the wood had been a reasonable size but it was too small... More
