Visited last night 8/12/18 for a family meal. Food was pretty average, nothing more than just your average pub food. Lovely building and great service but food does let it down which is a shame. Doubtful I’d go back.

Are the terrace rooms and the courtyard rooms the same or are they different categories of room? Which ones are the really small,noisy ones?
No the terrace rooms have a little terrace outside looking into the resultant and are much better. The courtyard rooms are pretty standard and just look into a courtyard. Very confusing but go with the terrace rooms.

Which rooms are the ones with walk in shower and a separate jacuzzi bath? You advertise rooms as standard double or standard double court rooms and also executive and superior rooms? Also looking for room higher up with a view and away from bar or restaurant noise so wondered which rooms were best for quietness and with the walk in shower and jacuzzi bath?
We stayed in room 2, the drawing room. The room had a separate shower and a jacuzzi bath

"Large spacious room at back."
"Not room 15 (Dick Turpin Room)"
"Rooms at back may be quieter at night."
