We popped in for a light bite and a drink but the food took 30 minutes to arrive. We only ordered cheese sandwiches so it should have been an easy item to obtain as we were in a hurry. When the sandwiched arrived the presentation...More

The setting is pleasant enough - clean and fresh. Otherwise, the evening was a disappointing. The service was poor, and after we were served our food we were ignored. We gave up on dessert or coffee. One of our servers was new - but the...More

This place is really lovely. 5 ladies on a quiet Hen do. The place was just what we wanted. The rooms were good, bathrooms could be updated though, and the windows in the room didn't open, so no fire escape, but more concerning was that...More

Hi, We want to visit your Inn soon but my husband is wheelchair bound and the chair is a wide one ( but not American ginormous !!). I see from your site there is a ramp going into the front but could you please assure me that the foyer/hallways/doorways are not very narrow before one enters your spacious dining area. if the weather is fine there will be no problem as your outside areas look lovely - but this is Britain and the weather is unpredictable !! Thank you and regards, Margaret
