Even before you walk in you're welcomed by a charming you lad who was cutting the grass on a warm spring day.
The bar area was lovely and it looks like a lot of time and effort goes into this place.
We were checked in by the Assistant Manager, his name was Arwyn(I think or something rather Welsh) who took us up to Room 10. It was a lovely room, antique wardrobe and furnishings which fit in perfectly with the mood and the character of the building.
Some fresh milk and some homemade cookies were provided which were a nice touch.
We were lucky that the staff are local as Arwyn directed us on where we could go for a walk.
My girlfriend and I went walking for a good 2 hours and when we came back we ended up having a nice cold pint of Peroni and a glass of sparkling wine.
It was a busy night in the kitchen as it was half term and it was nice to see a place that busy, shows that it is a good place to eat.
I started with Scallops and my other half had warm bread and olives(the white bread was lovely)
I then had a sirloin steak, cooked to perfection, medium-rare, just how I like it. My girlfriend had the Seabass which was local but I can't remember where it was from and she said it's probably the best fish dish she has had in many many years.
I couldn't handle a pudding as I was too full but my other half had the Afogato, simple, clean but very effective.
The service was great, which was mainly by the young lad who we met while walking in, I think he said his name was Arnie or something along those lines. He was very polite.
We had an early night and had a lovely sleep(the beds are simply amazing, so comfortable and just spot on!!)
Breakfast was just as good as the meal the previous night! Poached eggs were just bang on!
We even had some Danish pastries!
Check out was again nice and simple, no rush to kick us out haha
The short girl who served our breakfast was smiling and made sure we had a lovely stay and that we did!
Looking forward to coming back again.
