Good food, very disappointing bottle of merlot which was disgusting and no attempt was made to address our concerns when we flagged it up. Beautiful venue and overall a pleasant experience.

About £80, if you want a nice pub in a pretty village it is for you. If you want a 4 star hotel it will be a disappointment. My wife and I loved it, food was good and landlords were lovely couple.
