Good Hotel Guide Review

Chef Sherri Singleton and her husband, David McKay, run their affable restaurant-with-rooms in a coastal village (noted for its swans) close to Constable country. Seafood is a speciality in the relaxed, beamed drinking and dining areas (smart tongue-and-groove panelling, a wood-burning stove), where the ‘unpretentious’ menus list Mersea oysters and other locally landed seafood, plus meats from nearby Sutton Hoo. Interesting vegetarian options might include asparagus and artichoke pearl barley ‘risotto’, Lyburn Gold cheddar, crispy nettles. Cosy bedrooms decorated in a soothing palette have nice extras (dressing gowns, luxury toiletries, home-made biscuits); four have views down the Stour estuary. Light sleepers, ask for a room away from traffic noise. 3 mins’ walk from train station.
