We ate at the Baron twice during our one week stay at Swallow Cottage, Bucknell.
Good choice of food and drinks. Excellent service. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Fair prices.
Wish it was close to home!! We would be regulars.

“Good food in a lovely setting”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

A beautiful restaurant, attentive staff, and the food was delicious, not an over-facing plateful, just the right amount to be able to fit in a sweet!

“Excellent accommodation and food”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed at the Baron for 2 nights and ate on both nights. The rooms are beautifully fitted out and the view out of our room (no 4) was lovely. The food was tasty and plentiful we were a party of 10 so had a lot of meals off the menu and everyone was very happy with their choices. The waitress we had was very pleasant and smiled throughout, nothing was too much trouble for her. Breakfast was very tasty and cooked to order. Would definitely recommend.

“What a lovely place.”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We stayed in the Baron for my birthday present and had an absolutely tremendous time. The room was beautifully decorated and looked out to the garden and camping field; stunning. We had a meal that night and the menu had plenty of choice and the food was esquisite; one of the best meals I have ever tasted.I would most definately recommend a stay at the Baron or even pop in for a meal; we will be booking another stay very soon.
