The Fishbourne, as it is now known ,is under new ownership as of October 2011. It's been cleaned up, smartened up and updated and it is highly recommended. As a local resident I haven't stayed there but I've seen the rooms which are crisp, clean and very nice and I have booked three as an 'overflow' this Christmas.
Have eaten there a couple of times - the food is simple, well cooked and delicious. Good specials board and they offer the option of smaller portions for those without such a hearty appetite.
They deserve to be a success.
