Good Hotel Guide Review

It has been refurbished in country house style by owners Pamela and Michael Horton; Quentin Fisher is the manager. Most of the individually designed, well-equipped bedrooms overlook the river; four cottage suites, a short walk from the inn, have their own garden. Modern European cuisine is served in the brasserie; in summer, doors open on to a courtyard for alfresco dining. Lift. Lounge, bar (wood-burning stove), brasserie. Free Wi-Fi. Background music. ½-acre garden. Civil wedding licence; functions. Children, and dogs (in some bedrooms) welcomed. Trout fishing can be arranged. 22 bedrooms (4 in garden cottages, 1 with hot tub).
