Good Hotel Guide Review
Devotees of this thatched village pub-with-rooms with its Michelin-starred cooking and quirky style will be thrilled when it fully re-opens in autumn following 2021’s disastrous fire; rooms and breakfast, meanwhile, are unaffected. ‘Wonderful’, ‘quiet and comfortable’ bedrooms are tucked away across the road in converted farm buildings – characterful spaces of beams and low windows with country-scene wallpapers, tartan carpets and chunky wooden furniture. Fun objects include old riding boots, and even a piano in one, a pool table in another. Additional lighter, more contemporary bedrooms are in a new barn annexe. The lounge, with a hunting-lodge feel and log stove, is a place ‘to sink back’ with a drink from the honesty bar. ‘Amazing’ feast-like breakfasts are served at a giant round table. ‘A fabulous experience.’
