Good Hotel Guide Review
Contemporary country house meets ‘cheerful’ local pub at this 12th-century former abbot’s lodge, in a ‘beautiful’ conservation village. The spirit of the place is immediately striking, say Guide inspectors this year. ‘It blends effortlessly into the architecture and the ambience of the village’; ‘the accent you hear and the mood created belong to the immediate area’. The main building – its thick stone walls and medieval vaulted bar, its ‘maze of corridors’ – ‘reeks of history’; bedrooms, up the stairs, in adjacent cottages and in The Angel across the road, are modern and ‘beautifully appointed’. ‘Our first-floor Angel room had a restrained decor in tartan, greys and cream. It had a window seat, two chairs, very good storage, delicious home-made cookies; a great rain shower over the bath.’ Eat in the Bishop’s Dining Room: chef Simon Hicks’s ‘interesting’, ‘unfussy’ dishes might include duck cooked on the open grill; a ‘lovely’ pea, lettuce and lovage soup. ‘The tables were quite close together, encouraging chat between guests.’ Calcot Manor, Tetbury (see entry), is under the same ownership.
