Spent 1 night here to celebrate my husband's birthday.
Perfect from start to finish. We were warmly welcomed by Tony to our spacious room in a converted barn. Lovely to have a proper coffee maker and fresh milk in the fridge and the cake was yummy! The accommodation is not country house style, but extremely comfortable with good attention to detail (fluffy towels and bathrobes, etc and scrupulously clean)
Dinner was just fantastic. Tina's food is truly delicious from the warming spicy lentil soup amuse bouche, perfectly cooked scallops, wonderfully juicy pheasant and truly delicious chocolate truffle sponge! (I never eat puddings, but managed most of this one!).
The food & hospitality ethos of Tony and Tina may not be to everyone's taste (after looking at some of the previous comments) but I would highly recommend it! How wonderful to be served food that has been produced with love and care!
I hope to return again soon.
