Good Hotel Guide Review

The Stagg made history in 2001 as the first pub in Britain to earn a Michelin star – a coup for Nicola and Steve Reynolds, who’d taken on the abandoned inn just three years before, and have run it with grace and flair ever since. ‘They have the right balance: the food, service and ambience are superb,’ writes a fellow Guide hotelier. ‘Everyone is so friendly, helpful and gracious that visitors cannot fail to feel cosseted.’ The ‘lovely’ old inn is ‘full of nooks and crannies (as well as unexpected steps to trap the unwary)’; dried hops hang from the beams, while book- stuffed alcoves invite a good rummage. Locals fill the cosy pub (real ales, local gins, sophisticated snacks); in the dining rooms, Steve Reynolds’s flavourful, pretension-free meals might include Herefordshire beef fillet, smoked mash. ‘Leave room for pudding: the home-made ice creams and sorbets deserve a mention.’ Spend the night in ‘quiet’ rooms at the back of the inn, or in the ‘beautifully furnished’, antique-packed Georgian vicarage down the country road (the hosts offer to drive the distance). (Richard Morgan-Price, Mary Hewson)

Guest comments

'A beautiful house, tastefully decorated for Christmas. Very comfortable, spacious bedroom. Minor grouse: poor bedside lighting and nowhere to put soap in the shower. But we were made so welcome and well looked after that we didn’t mind. Wonderful dinner. Service professional yet friendly. ' - Kate MacMaster - December, 2016
'There are not many places where I stay where the moment I walk through the door I think: ‘This is going to be a nice place to stay,’ And so it proved to be. I had a large, simply but comfortably appointed room. The pub overlooks a main road but there really isn’t much traffic. Ace bedside lights. The food is excellent: modern British cooking of a high order. I was met with friendliness and courtesy. ' - AT - May, 2016
'We were warmly greeted at this most attractive old inn, full of nooks and crannies. Every alcove is filled with books or bottles, and the atmosphere is cosy and welcoming. Our quiet room at the back was delightful. The dinners were excellent. Breakfast very good too. The Stagg’s secret is not the Michelin-starred food nor the fascinating building, but the people who work there. They are so friendly, helpful and gracious that visitors cannot fail to feel cosseted. ' - Mary Hewson - April, 2014
'We stayed in The George, a dog-friendly self-contained unit bricked into the back of the building. Our dog was happy to find a dish there just for her. My wife liked the real coffee on the hospitality tray. The bed was comfortable; the bedside lighting as good as it gets. We were greeted in most friendly fashion, given a helpful map of a nearby walk for our dog. The service couldn't be beat. Friendly respect in the restaurant. Fine food: The breakfast was just as good. ' - Tony Thomas - October, 2013
