Enjoyed a delicious Sunday lunch here. Quite pricey but it was worth it. They serve local Conker Gin but it is just a shame they don't serve any local ale. They allow dogs in all areas and have treats available too.

Hi, Foxglove is a lovely super king or twin room. In the stables, it holds a view of the garden patio. It has all the amenities you would expect including a tv. Hope that helps and we will see you soon
