Last year we had our wedding reception at the Manners Arms and it was a great success. So we decide to return for a night for our first anniversary. The inn was just as wonderful as we remembered.

The staff are always excellent and friendly which is why we come for Sunday lunch when eating out locally rather than cooking it ourselves. The food this time though was poor, both the lamb and beef were poor quality compared to previous times. The sides of veg as well were not good this time and the roast potatoes were rock...

Found this place by accident and stopped for a coffee and cake. Lovely setting with some beautiful original features within the premises. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Can not say what the food is like as didn't see, or eat any cooked food. A team of workers were dissembling a marque and reassembling in another part of the garden....

10 of us ate a lovely Sunday lunch in beautiful surroundings! Food was lovely and well presented. My only criticism is that the veg sides were a little small and wasn't quite enough for 10 of us (I'm sure if we'd asked they would have brought more out...but we'd already asked for more gravy!!)
