Good Hotel Guide Review

‘What a fab place,’ say Guide inspectors in 2016, who arrived on a jolly quiz night at Sue Burdge’s ‘wonderful’ village pub-with-rooms. The ‘lovely’ old building – with its blackened beams, antiques and inglenook fireplace – is reached down a convolution of country lanes. Inside, bedrooms are accessed through the bar (‘very trusting, with all those wonderful whiskies on display!’) and up ‘quite steep stairs’. ‘The rooms are delightful – a lovely place to rest on arrival, and return to after a scrumptious dinner. Ours, glamorous and elegant, had a supremely comfy bed and plenty of magazines. A decanter of amontillado had been set out to welcome us.’ Book in for dinner: ‘The fabulous food makes this place a destination in its own right.’ Among the ‘attractively presented’ dishes: ‘sensational home-smoked salmon; an excellent potato-and-leek veggie pie, with a jug of yummy tarragon sauce; perfect rhubarb crumble’. (‘A good selection of draft cider suits the high-class pub food well.’) Make your choice the night before for a ‘stupendous’ breakfast. ‘Can you give a César for devilled kidneys?’ (Humphrey and Frances Norrington, and others)

Guest comments

'A wonderful pub with fabulous food. Stupendous breakfasts served in a charming room. Our bedroom was delightful. The dine and stay deal is amazing value and the dinner is scrumptious ' - A K - January, 2016
'Good food reasonably priced in a very nice pub. ' - Peter Anderson - January, 2013
'Lovely old pub in a hidden valley. It has a fine atmosphere. Our room, Bluebell, was reasonable size, light and bright. The bars were busy on a Friday night. We ate in the small restautrant. The cooking is decent. Helpings are generous and the food is rich. Service was good. Sue Burdge, the sociable hostess was much in evidence. Breakfast less good: boring toast. ' - D B - June, 2012
'Very good dinner. Highly atmospheric. Steak and ale the best I have had. USP seems to be the huge whisky selection, 262 at last count. ' - Andrew & Moira Kleissner - August, 2012
