Very convenient stop on A 40 for Sunday lunch.It was really enjoyable and the lamb was melt in the mouth.The roast potatoes were crispy.There is also a shop attached with quality items in it. There is a larger menu for weekdays.Polite and friendly service.

Have stopped off here before for a coffee previously, so this review is based on that and a visit to the shop. It is a lovely destination and venue, the coffee is far better than the usual chains and there is also a few cake options of which I was tempted and enjoyed. We purchased a few items from the...

Thank you for your kind review. We chose our coffee very carefully and after 12 years in the coffee trade we pride ourselves on making a good coffee. We also take great pride in finding gifts for our shop which are a little different from the mormal high street offereng. We are so pleased that you appreciate it. We look...

Arrived to a lovely warm welcome from the owners who showed us straight to our room. Fresh milk was provided for the complimentary tea and coffee facilities. We stayed in room number three which has a huge super king size bed, it was very comfortable and made for a wonderful nights sleep. We had booked a table prior to our...

Thank you. It was a delight to look after you for the week-end. We very much hope to see you again for Suday lunch, or even (if Grandma can be persuaded to look after the children!) another weekend away some time.

Lovely lunch, I had the salmon starter and Ian had Black pud and bacon panini. Very good, beer and wine very good although the wine was a tad on the dear side. Lunch menu was very reasonable and from what we tasted and saw was very good. Evening menu looks excellent and if lunch was anything to go by, I...

Popped in on our way home from Cheltenham races. Food was fantastic, good service and nice atmosphere. Would definitely recommend! Didn't stay the night so cannot comment on the rooms but the views from the restaurant were amazing.

We came across this lovely place by chance, so much better than stopping at services! Very pleasant ambience, good customer service, delicious, good value food. Facilities were adequate, although baby change facilities for men would be good. Didn't have a chance to look round the shop but it seemed to have some beautiful bits. Garden would be lovely in the...

After a long day travelling my wife and I stopped in at Garniche on our way back to Cheltenham. The building is set back from the main A40 but because of its size and imposing position we were fortunate to notice it and turned back to visit and perhaps eat. As well maintained as the building is on the outside...
