I called in here with a friend after a circular walk aross to the canal and back. Very friendly welcome with lovely home-cooked menu. Food was very fresh and tasty, my friend really enjoyed the haddock risotto which was beautifully cooked and presented. Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert but the menu did look good. Lovely cosy atmosphere created...

Tamsin, you have made me feel very hungry reading your review and I now want to go and have lunch by the woodburner rather than stay working at my computer. We look forward to welcoming you again perhaps after a Spring walk to the canal and back.

Room: Clean, very comfortable rooms. Staff: Outstanding service from all of the team. Team could not be more accommodating and polite. Food: Lovely food. If I stayed here too long I would definitely put on weight 😄 Maybe a little limited in terms of vegetarian options on the menu (fish dishes are marked as veggie), however it was not an...

Thank you so much for your very detailed review, we are very pleased to receive "Home from Home 4.5* Highly Recommended." I have passed on all your comments and suggested areas for improvement. Interestingly we are currently in the process of redecorating our bedrooms, so hopefully they will be to your liking when you return.

This is a beautiful small hotel. We stayed for just one night, a Friday, in one of the Four Poster bed rooms. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom modern with a brilliant shower. Everything was spotless. We were meeting family nearby so didn't eat dinner but the bar and dinning area looked very welcoming. Breakfast the next morning...

Wonderful overnight stay, booked here because we couldn't find another hotel closer to Armourgeddon, where we'd had a great tank paintball battle experience that afternoon (see my other review on that). Our double room was very clean, large enough, but probably not as big as other custom-made hotels (this is an old converted building), however, certainly large enough for the...

Dinned here with friends on Monday night. Lovely food, freshly prepared & pleasant atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this place. They also offer functions. My friends were so pleased that they serve Stowford press cider. This is local to Newbold which is where we were staying.

Called in here for a light lunch during a day's walking. What a great find! The staff are friendly, the food excellent and the place itself is lovely with plenty of outside tables on the lawns to enjoy a drink or a meal. Not tried the accommodation but planning to.

Dropped in on a weekday lunchtime and ate in the restaurant section near to the bar (the far restaurant room was empty), only 2 others in there hence no atmosphere - a pity, as the interior itself is fairly characterful. Had to order food at bar and when it came it was below average taste and presentation, though not expensive...
