We had the pleasure to stay at Church Gates for 2 nights as a start of our roundtrip through England. It couldn't have started better. Upon arrival in the squeeky and filled with character b&b, we were greeted by Joe who showed us to our room. Though we initially booked the ensuite, there was a small mixup in the reservation. No worries though, as the yellow room is comfortable and full of character. A few highlights are the great breakfast (Joe is a good chef), intelligent conversation with the hosts and frequenting town characters and some morning reading next to a beautiful flower garden looking out over the church grounds.
The George serves quality food. The Indian restaurant close by is also worth a visit.
