Good Hotel Guide Review
Country comfort informs sister-and-brother team Tania and Adrian Slater’s voguishly refurbished 18th-century coaching inn, in a tranquil village 8 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon. Locals and visitors come for the real ales and house cocktails, plus the modern twists on pub favourites: ham hock mac ’n’ cheese, truffled cheese sauce, say, or chicken, leek and pancetta pie, champ mash. (The private dining area behind the double-aspect fireplace is a cosy spot for a special occasion.) There’s room at the inn: four, in fact, each supplied with luxury linens, a woollen throw and complimentary goodies (the Slater siblings are behind beauty products company Baylis & Harding). Two rooms, ideal for a family, have a loft bed. Borrow a guide book and a pair of wellies, and head out on a ramble – the staff are happy to advise on the Fuzzy Duck Waddle.
