Fabulous rooms, wonderful spa, delicious breakfasts and professional and helpful staff .... perfect if it hadn't been for a pretty poor show at Dinner in Acorns on the first night. The starters took nearly 45 minutes to arrive and my 'clam chowder' was a paltry serving of chopped potato in a white gloop that didn't touch the sides of the soup bowl, but lay apologetically in the middle ... as it arrived I realised I hadn't been given a soup spoon - and then I saw that this had been prophetic on the part of the very pleasant waitress who briskly exchanged the chowder for the soup of the day .... a further 20 minutes passed before the main courses arrived ... other dishes pleasant enough; my husband really enjoyed the slow roasted pork belly, but his mussels starter did not seem to reflect the 'steaming in cider' (the sauce tasted like pure cream) and the vegetarian lasagne was pricey for the content of essentially tomato puree. In contrast the breakfasts were excellent; especially the smoked haddock and poached eggs.
