THE LYGON ARMS, Broadway, Worcestershire, is this month’s prize giver. An Elizabethan coaching inn with roots in the 13th century, it has been restored to its historic glory by new owners. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton feature in the guestbook though not earlier guests Charles I and Oliver Cromwell. There is a beautiful landscaped terraced garden. Ales Maurer’s modern British menus include such dishes as herb crust lamb canon. You can dine in the wine bar (panini, pasta, pizzette), in cosy lounges or the stunning Great Hall, with its barrel ceiling, huge fireplace and minstrels’ gallery.
All you need to do to win this handsome prize of a night’s dinner, bed and breakfast for two at the Lygon Arms is to SEND A REVIEW of your favourite hotel or B&B in Great Britain or Ireland. We welcome reports on places that have never been in the Guide or have been omitted, as well as those that have a current entry.
Chris and Erika Savory from Lyme Regis are the winners of last month’s prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at HOTEL ENDSLEIGH, Milton Abbot, Devon. A former César winner, it was originally built as a fishing lodge but has been turned by Olga Polizzi into an elegant but relaxed retreat. It has glorious grounds with woodland walks, waterfalls, founts and follies running along the Tamar. Bedrooms have original features with hand-painted wallpaper. Delicious food from the new chef, Tom Ewings.
