Considering there was over 30 of us (all drunk as well) the blenheim provided excellent and timely service from quite a decent menu selection, considering how small it it. Though they're pudding is quite limited ( I ended up having ice cream :-( ) that is the only criticism I have. They gave my entire family complete usage of the... More

We visited with a group of colleagues and had the benefit of the lovely Radbourne room for privacy. We preordered and there was great choice from the menu we were offered and it was difficult to decide what to have. I started with asparagus wrapped in Parma ham served with a poached duck egg, really lovely and tasty. Only issue... More

Lovely place for food, bar meals or just a nice catch up with friends. Never disappointed! All the food is cooked fresh to order and they can adapt meals for all requirements. Staff are very professional and friendly!

Owned and run by the Richie-Smith family this superb small hotel has all the personal touches needed to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Dinner was a very enjoyable meal served in a relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast was individually prepared and served piping hot... More

In the area for a few days for a work engagement and wanted to eat out. What seemed noticeable was just how few good restaurants there were within 10 miles or so. This stood-out on Tripadvisor and so had to be visited. And it was worth it! From walking through the front door and being welcomed by a wonderful fire... More

I stayed here by chance due to my original booking falling through elsewhere. What a lovely surprise it was! Friendly helpful staff along with excellent food and choice of wines. Room was stunning too. Will be back!
