“Second visit”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

This is a very special place, food excellent great choice of beers and wine, staff lovely and a cosy bar/eating area. We have also eaten in the restaurant but booking in advance would be advisable as it gets extremely busy.Next time we are in the area we will try an over night stay.

Another trip here and another rave review. Everything about the stay was perfect, the staff were welcoming and helpful, the food fantastic and the room exceptional. Last time we stayed they needed more bar staff and friendlier bar staff, this seems to have happened. We were served efficiently and the beer & wine was spot on.

Room Tip: Choose a hot tub suite!

Second time we have stayed here, both times in Hot Tub Suite 11.
Rooms are well laid out, and the fire makes it so cosy. Obviously the private hot tub is a major attraction, but the pub and restaurant are also great.
Nice selection of real ales, and the food is fantastic, with great service. We will make this an annual treat !

We stayed overnight at the Tempest Arms after attending a birthday party there. The room, a junior Suite, was clean and comfortable. The gas fuelled coal effect fire was welcome as it was a cold weekend. There were some nice touches such as dressing gowns and the chocolates on the bed on our arrival. The two twin beds were more like doubles than singles and there was a choice of pillows.There is free cake for guests at reception, another nice touch. One small negative comment (from a personal point of view) was that there was an open fire in the bar area which made it far too hot for some people and we had to find a table well away from the fire. I suppose it is a difficult balance between an inviting open fire on a cold day and some areas being too hot for comfort.
The food was very good with several choices for breakfast.
The key questions is; would we return to the hotel? The answer is yes without a doubt. We are already planning to take friends there for lunch.

Room Tip: There are a number of different types of room including some with a hot tub, so choose one to suit y...

We stayed at the Tempest Arms between Christmas and new year. A cosy pub with an excellent and very extensive menu all at very reasonable prices. Our room, a junior suite was amazing, with quality fixtures and fittings. All the staff are very friendly especially those in the restuarant as it was very busy and the service was nothing short of excellent at all times. We had a lovely relaxing break and hope to visit again very soon.

We had a meal at lunchtime and found the food of decent quality at a good price. The menu is extensive and the portions generous. Most people having a starter before their main course probably wouldn't want a desert as well. Service was good and the atmosphere relaxed. Certainly to be recommended.
