We stayed for 2 nights for my husband's birthday. There are some lovely touches, fresh cakes in the afternoon, water and biscuits for your drive home, and a highly spec'd "Shed" where we stayed.
The location is a short walk into Ludlow and very attractive in the sun. We felt the menu wasn't geared up to people dining for 2 nights in a row as it was repetitive, if good. Service was OK, no waiting, and friendly staff. However, only the owner was able to give good descriptions of the food, especially the cheese board. For somewhere priding themselves on their food this is, in my opinion, unusual.
The fact that everyone eats from a single set menu, mostly choosing a wine tasting menu, and all seating at the same time, does make for a slight conveyor belt feeling. Whilst making it operationally efficient this isn't great for atmosphere.
Morston Hall in Norfolk, has a similar mandatory menu. However, tiered dining times and better trained staff make the dining experience come across as more exclusive. It is also significantly cheaper for accommodation which is on a par for space and specification and their menus are more diverse for those staying more than 1 night. (P.S I don't have anything to do with that establishment, I just provide comment for those who have also been there to benchmark this review by).
