Good Hotel Guide Review
A village-hub feel spills out of Dane and Sarah Allchorne’s ‘enjoyable’ pub-with-rooms, a 16th-century hall house updated with a jocund dairy theme. There’s ‘plenty of atmosphere’ here: locals and visitors come for the bar bites, wood-fired pizzas, cask ales and local beers, served under timber beams or in the large, sunny garden; the rustic dining room has a seasonal menu of creative modern plates, their ingredients sourced from within a 20-mile radius. Upstairs, bedrooms with names such as Byre and Buttery are modishly understated, with a ‘very comfortable’ bed, and fresh flowers in milk pails. (Rear rooms are quieter.) Vita Sackville-West’s Sissinghurst Castle and gardens are 20 minutes away on foot.
