Good Hotel Guide Review

Find peace, tranquillity and a finely cooked English beef fillet at Janine and Richard Burton’s ‘well-run’ hotel and restaurant on the High Street of this ‘lovely’ market town. (It is named after the meditative WB Yeats verse in which the Irish poet evokes a rustic serenity.) The restaurant is popular with locals, who come for chef Stuart Mead’s ‘imaginative’ modern dishes, perhaps smoked and cured mackerel, Bleue d’Artois potatoes, wasabi salt, capers; roast chicken, wild mushrooms, scorched cabbage, barley risotto. Eat well, then retire to one of the modest modern bedrooms upstairs or in courtyard cottages, to spend the night. Each is equipped with a tea tray and home-baked biscuits; the best have a whirlpool bath. There’s ‘notably good choice’ at breakfast: choose from compotes, fruits and natural yogurt; freshly baked croissants and home-made preserves; Scotch kippers; salmon and smoked haddock fishcakes. A fine base for exploring the area; for those yearning to follow in Yeats’s soil-encrusted footsteps, ancient woodland, protected wildlife sites and the Rutland Water nature reserve are within a half-hour’s drive.

Guest comments

'The only twin bedded room is not large but perfectly adequate in size. Beds extremely comfortable. During a very hot weekend, the hotel supplied a fan, and with the window wide open it was not too hot. As usual the evening meal was superb. Breakfast similarly brilliant. All ingredients top quality and cooked to perfection. ' - Christine Hodgkin - June, 2017
'A very good and appetizing meal (decent size portions) yesterday at this two rosette restaurant. With a tip, the total for six was £200, representing considerable value. Polite, attentive service and a good selection of wine available by the glass at fair prices. ' - Robert and Pauline Gower - June, 2017
'Exactly what I expect from that kind of price. A smallish room but plenty big enough, with a small bathroom, which had a bath with shower over. Nothing outstanding, but nothing lacking, and scrupulously clean. The reason you stay is the food which is some of the best at that price in the country. In all the years it has existed we have never had a less than perfect evening meal there; their puddings have always been "to die for". The breakfasts don't disappoint . ' - Christine Hodgkin - February, 2017
'Delightful hotel in delightful town; delightful staff; small bedroom; very good three-course meal at £17-50 specially created for holiday period. ' - KJ Salway Salway - July, 2016
'Excellent food. Room fine. No downstairs rooms (listed building) but otherwise top marks. ' - AD and J Lloyd - February, 2016
