Simply, superb. Have been before and, yesterday, had my 1st visit to experience products of new chef. Food was of the highest order (including 1st course dish of smoked eels. Yup, eels. Imaginitive and a delightful dish) and of similar quality to Michelin starred establishments I've visited. Keep up the good work.

Well what can I say, having never tried a tasting menu before I was a little sceptical when I saw the menu but it was incredible. Ever dish was perfectly executed, I can honestly say this is probably one of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had - from the modern, beautifully presented restaurant, the very helpful, professional, friendly and knowledgeable staff to the spectacular food. If you have never experienced a tasting menu before please try Pentonbridge Inn, there are not enough words to describe how amazing it was!!

Well what a find! This place is perfect for a short getaway.

My husband and I stayed at the Pentonbridge Inn at the end of October as a treat for our 18th Wedding Anniversary and we had such a wonderful experience. The staff were brilliant and so friendly, they made you feel so welcome. Although the room was small it was beautifully finished and the little extra touches certainly added to our stay. There were hot water bottles, fresh flowers, little chocolate brownies made in their own kitchen (delicious!), great sized toiletries from Noble Isle which smell divine and a high tech window system. The only disappointment for us was that we would have preferred a bath instead of a walk-in shower but unfortunately when we asked if we could move to a room that had a bath, there were none left, so make sure you ask for one when booking.

We also had dinner in the restaurant and we were certainly not disappointed. The food was superb and Gary the chef is an absolute credit. The wine selection is excellent and I was even able to have some of my favourite red wine Château Musar which I was thrilled about! We had breakfast the following morning which was also delicious especially the baked to order croissant’s!

The icing on the cake for us was that we were lucky enough to meet the owners who were so lovely with us and made us feel so welcome. Their two black Labradors, Mungo & Henry are part of the furniture and so well-behaved. Absolutely gorgeous!

I have been telling all my friends and colleagues about this place! if you get the opportunity you must come here, you will not be disappointed and we will most certainly be returning. We may even try one of their apartments at Netherby Hall just down the road, which is a stunning place, where they also have events on throughout the year.

Thanks for a wonderful stay guys!

Booked for overnight stay after finding it on the internet, and was not disappointed! We wanted somewhere out of the way to stay, and struck gold! Very welcoming staff, beautifully appointed room with bath and shower, well equipped for tea, coffee, etc. Seems no expense spared in renovation of the inn. Some pleasant local walks, with guide maps and suggestions available. Then the food! Absolutely first-class; we had a pub lunch and the evening tasting menu, both of which were to a very high standard - as was breakfast the next morning - good choices available. Knowledgable advice on wine, the whole experience was wonderful, accompanied by very attentive but not intrusive service - just the right balance with everything. We will be back!

Obviously, such care is lavished on the preparation of dishes. Each mouthful is a taste adventure! We were particularly appreciative of the local meat and large array of locally grown vegetables.

Dear JXX18
Thank you for your review. It is always good to hear when guests enjoy eating with us, and especially liking our ‘home grown’ vegetables and local produce.
