We were looking forward to coming for a night - my wife had been before for lunch and said it was excellent. Warm welcome and good beer but really poor food (don't think this is normal as everyone else's seemed to be fine) led me to complain. Reaction was that as I had eaten some (2 bites - enough to confirm it was as bad as it looked) I could not have any form of replacement unless I paid for another meal. Dog in the bar was on the scrounge straight away. This was not the way I expected an establishment of this repute to behave and it spoiled the evening, frankly. Rooms were nice, though bed far too soft for us (sort of collapsed) and the dog, having taken a break from scrounging at the tables, took up periodic barking to keep us awake for a while. Room could do with a better clean, and a waste bin in the room would have been good. Breakfast was excellent. Won't hurry back though - a shame.
