Good Hotel Guide Review

Wind down narrow lanes to arrive at this real-ale-serving, quiz-night-holding, Christmas-market-organising, summertime-pizza-serving pub-with-rooms, the thatched-roof heart of the hamlet. ‘Fresh and tasteful’, it enters the Guide this year thanks to inspectors who found it ‘a hive of activity’. Owned by Clare and Charlie Garrard, the ‘ancient’ pub looks the part: dark flagstone floors; a burnished leather sofa by a wood-burning stove; newspapers, board games, table skittles. On chilly nights, a brazier is lit for guests who gather outside. Across the garden, modern bedrooms with ‘excellent’ facilities are in an ‘immaculate’ converted barn. ‘Our elegant ground-floor room had comfortable beds, handsome table lamps, white slatted shutters; a well-lit wet room; a generous hospitality tray with home-made biscuits.’ Settle into the ‘spacious’ dining room over a ‘straightforward’ daily-changing menu. ‘We liked duck parfait with home-baked brioche toast; tasty slow-cooked pork belly with crackling.’ ‘The young staff are rather green – we stunned our waiter by asking for sherry – but they’re very nice, and try hard to please.’
