Good Hotel Guide Review
A local hot spot for real ales, signature cocktails and zesty pub classics, the Slater siblings have got country comfort down to a fine art at their stylish 18th-century coaching inn. ‘It was good value and the food was extremely good.’ Typical fare: pan-fried sea bass fillet, Cornish crab cake, celeriac, samphire, orange and rosemary butter. Above the restaurant, ‘minimalist’ bedrooms, named after types of duck, have high-quality linens; bathrooms are supplied with robes and complimentary goodies from the owners’ beauty company, Baylis & Harding. Some rooms, ideal for a family, have a loft bed tucked in above the bathroom, and a dress-up box for younger guests. Breakfast is cooked to order. Borrow guidebooks and wellies for a countryside ramble.
