Good Hotel Guide Review
There’s a ‘welcoming’ atmosphere at Daniel and Hannah Hall’s ‘really nice’ 16th-century country inn, all medieval walls, ‘massive’ beams, inglenook fireplaces and ‘delicious’ pub grub. ‘We like the fact that it hasn’t been mucked around with, and is still sticking to its traditional character.’ Take a seat in the popular bar and ‘lovely’ oak-panelled dining room for a local ale and a dish off the ‘inviting’ menu. Once a month, sharpen your trivia skills at the convivial pub quiz. Afterwards, retire to one of the characterful bedrooms, each ‘well equipped and modern’ against original sloping floors and handsome antique furnishings. Two rooms, across the courtyard, have French windows opening on to a private garden. Good choice at breakfast. Bar (open fire), snug, restaurant. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Background music. Parking. Children (special menu) welcomed. 8 miles SW of Peterborough. 8 bedrooms (2 on ground floor). Per room B&B £95–£185.
