“Lovely Stay - Super Food”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Four of us stayed for 2 nights in the Garden Rooms - Forge and Bellows. Rooms a bit lacking in that no safe or mini bar and furniture a little basic and tired, but there was a hairdryer, ironing board and iron. In Forge Garden Room we had one double - 4' 6" bed and one single bed. Room and bathroom was very clean and beds very comfortable. Nice and quiet location - no noise at night - despite a wedding being held in the main hotel. The food in both the main restaurant and the Bistro was excellent, very high standard. All in all a lovely characterful Inn, good accommodation and excellent food. Would recommend and certainly revisit.

Room Tip: Gardens Rooms were quiet.

We stopped here on our way through Peterborough and what a find it was!! The food was fantastic, the restaurant was warm and cosy with a big open fire, overall it was a great atmosphere. The bistro wasn't open so we were seated in the restaurant although initially they were unhappy that we had a child with us, which we found a bit strange?!

The Stilton cheese board was divine!!

Stayed here when attending a 21st birthday party.
The function itself was excellent with the hotel staff coping well with 60/80 guests. Food was good. Service was good.
Our room was well serviced, clean, etc and great for a one night stay.
Breakfast was very good with a good selection of food. The staff were great in dealing with a crowd who were slightly below par!

Very enjoyable stop over and excellent evening meal.
Rooms looking a little updated and need redecorating and refurbishing.
In the room we had the bathroom was tiny.
Otherwise a lovely old coaching inn with some great beers.

This is a beautiful old coaching Inn, sympathetically restored.We chose to eat in the Bistro rather than the restaurant as the choice and prices suited us. I had probably the best fish and chips ever! Love crispy batter and chips- recommend! Pity there was only one other table occupied so it lacked atmosphere- but better service for us! Recommend!

Really nice food every time. (I've probably eaten here over 100 times over the years).

All of it is cooked freshly from raw ingredients and you can really tell that in the taste.

Excellent value as you can chose to eat in the bar which is very reasonably priced hearty food to fine dining in the restaurant.

The latest visit was a business lunch with some overseas visitors who were very impressed.

The bar keeps it's real ales very well and the staff are very pleasant without being obtrusive.

Stayed a few times in the last 6 months on overnight business. Rooms are ok but staff and food are really good. Evening meal in the pub/bistro is consistantly good and the breakfast is excellent served by great waiting staff. If you are staying in the area its definitely worth booking
