Delightful place, an old world inn with a modern twist - nicely spruced up to todays standards, from the garden room restaurant in a newly built oak barn extension to the modern tartan clad furnishings. Clearly an interior designer helped put this place together.
Food was good, ooh ! REAL chips ! :) well cooked and I have to say the Sticky toffee pudding - well at first i was disappointed - smallish portion one blob of ice cream.... - but then i ate it and my gosh - that has to be THE best Sticky toffee pudding i have had - and as my waistline can testify - I have tried a few !
Clearly a local haunt for the locals with a bevvy of Range rovers and BMWs in the car park ! Great staff, and the glass juggling barmaid .. good catch with that glass - you know who you are ! :)
Only down side was the WIFI, which was intermittent at best, so not so good for business travellers needing to catch up at the end of the day - But really great for couples and a lovely cosy venue.
would i stay again? - in a heart beat !
