Since my last visit when I was bowled over by the refurbishment of the hotel I was equally impressed with its high comfort level. Soooooo comfortable, You would think, having spent such vast sums on the hotel fabric and furnishings, you would expect the food to be pretty good.
That's the bad bit. The food is generally poor, meat either uncooked or tough as old boots, the kitchen service is poor although the front of house team are extremely helpful and willing. I had melon which was as hard as nails, inedible. The meringue described as pavlova was just awful and could be teeth breaking. The breakfast is very good, very very good. My advice is to stay here on a B & B basis and, until they get their chef sorted out, eat out. Notwithstanding, the area is quite delightful and a mecca for walkers, birdwatchers and those seeking peace and tranquillity. A must for any visitor who wants to buy a newspaper is 'The Village Shop' in the next village (turn right as you leave the hotel about a mile up the hill) which is an example of the kind of thing that most villages and small towns should aim for. The other shop (turn left this time, at the bottom of the hill) is just about as quirky as you can get and is all the more enjoyable for it, they serve food too, in huge portions.
