Good Hotel Guide Review

The Cinderella story is writ large in this ‘magnificent’ pub-with-rooms, an ‘elegant’ thatched-roof inn in a wooded valley. A group of villagers saved the derelict 19th-century building, the tale goes – and ‘what a conversion it’s turned out to be!’ say Guide inspectors in 2016. ‘We were welcomed with charm and warmth. Inside, superbly lit public areas wouldn’t be out of place in the smartest glossies: stunning, yet comfortable, custom-designed furniture, Persian-style rugs, well-chosen modern paintings in tune with the rural setting.’ Serene bedrooms overlook the village or the garden; two adjoining rooms are suitable for a family. ‘Everything was immaculate in our large, well-lit room: an emperor-size bed, good bedside lamps, filter coffee, six sorts of tea; in the bathroom, fluffy towels on heated rails.’ Come hungry for chef Mark Treasure’s ‘sophisticated’, ‘satisfying’ pub classics. ‘We loved the brill with a clever garnish of buckwheat, dried fig and crème fraîche.’ Mornings, wake to ‘delicious yogurt with fresh berries, chunky slices of home-baked bread, generous servings of salmon and scrambled eggs’.
