Good Hotel Guide Review
On the green of an ‘idyllic’ Cotswold village, this centuries-old inn is ‘an attractive place to stay’, with a ‘relaxed, easy’ ambience, say Guide inspectors in 2017. ‘Low-ceilinged and dark-beamed, with naturally friendly staff, it’s a lovely place in which to hunker down.’ There are armchairs by the log fire; alcoves with tables and seating; country scenes and ‘wonderful old photographs’ – try to spot the Ilmington Morris Men before dinner. In the ‘informally elegant’ mezzanine dining area, an ‘appealing’ menu of pub classics and ‘more ambitious’ dishes might include ‘a generous portion’ of steak and ale stew or ‘beautifully cooked’ duck breast and Jerusalem artichokes. Bedrooms are divided between the main building and a modern extension. ‘Our capacious garden room, in the well-soundproofed annexe, was supplied with ground coffee and buttery biscuits, plus a helpful guide to nearby villages. (Some slippers would have been appreciated for the cool bathroom floor, though.) We had an excellent night’s sleep in the comfy bed.’ Breakfast the morning after is ‘low key’: ‘pleasant’ porridge with Cotswold honey; ‘nice’ scrambled eggs.
