Good Hotel Guide Review

Paths through open countryside lead to the shady horse chestnut tree that guards this pretty, thatch-roofed country inn. Most guests prefer to arrive by car, but whatever their means, nearly all roll up here for chef/patron Marcus Lamb’s hearty Sunday roasts and pub classics, perhaps cider-glazed ham, free-range eggs, hand-cut chunky chips. The ‘well-equipped’, modern bedrooms, each named after a neighbouring village or landmark, are supplied with bottled water, fresh milk, tea and coffee tray. Across the courtyard, two have a private garden accessed via French windows. Overheated walkers can refresh in the relaxing beer garden. Packed lunches are available for jaunts into the wild.

Guest comments

'A pub not a hotel, but with sufficient good points that it ranks higher on my scoring system than many hotels I have used. There are rooms above the pub and a number in properly built rooms off of the rear car park. Wwe were pleased with our choice, well decorated and well equipped modern rooms – large double bed, hospitality tray with its’ own fridge with fresh milk, walk in shower plus large bath in the en-suite. If I were being super critical a couple more power points in the bedroom would not go amiss, but otherwise everything one could want, including a reliable Wi-Fi signal.The pub offers a choice of eating places – in the bar or associated but off-set bar room or a more formal restaurant, the latter being used for breakfast. The pub clearly attracts a large number of locals both to drink and eat; the rooms also have a loyal following judging by comments over breakfast with fellow guests… One ”bonus” – there is no mobile phone signal in the pub, so no shared conversations with people on their mobile phones or people clicking away whilst they eat – a clear benefit!
