We had a reservation for a meal at this lovely country pub but bedrooms were fully booked. Luckily for us, a forecast snow storm weekend caused a corporate booking to cancel so we got to stay in The Black Fushia Room which was very comfortable. Even though we had the hotel to ourselves, there was still a pleasant buzz in the bar, very friendly staff and a roaring fire. We had a fabulous meal. Everyone was friendly, food great and common areas clean, comfortable and welcoming. I would certainly return.
