Just returned from a one-night stay at The Northey Arms, which was thoroughly enjoyable and reasonably priced. There aren't many nice places in this neck of the woods who will accept a one-night stay at weekends - just the Friday night - but the Northey Arms not only did so, but offered a special bed, breakfast and dinner package for £199 for two people which we thought, given the standard of food and accommodation, was good value. Food first: dinner from the main menu, three courses, no restrictions on choice and every dish we had (there were four of us) very tasty and perfectly cooked. Breakfast was excellent, full English and even a request for burnt sausages was met! Service from the young staff was charming, polite, efficient. If it were possible to give 4.75 stars I would, but I had to deduct a little for one or two less than perfect aspects: our room (2) overlooked the main road and despite double glazing was a little noisy , and the bathroom, which was huge, seemed to have been designed by someone who had never actually used a bathroom -no towel rails near the washbasin (it was a long trek to the other end of the bathroom!) and a bit mean on toiletries. But these are very minor imperfections, and I would definitely recommend the Northey Arms. The village and the area are absolutely lovely and there's even a bus stop right outside if you want to go into Bath but don't want to face nightmare parking.
