Good Hotel Guide Review
Overlooking the market place, this family-run, 16th-century hotel continues to offer the coaching-inn essentials of good food, wine and comfort. It is ‘well run, with a personal touch’, say readers. It combines pub features – a fire-warmed snug, bar with beams, local ales – with a smarter dining room with candlesticks and polished tables. ‘The hotel takes its food seriously and its wine list even more so.’ Chef Darren Clemmit delivers ‘honest’, locally sourced food with creativity: home-made black pudding with scallops, say, or Yorkshire lamb with charred carrots. The crème brûlée is legendary. Breakfast is ‘a copious buffet and plenty of cooked options’, including ‘a well-cooked kedgeree’. Rooms in the main building are the most characterful, with feature wallpapers, blanket throws, soft carpets and the occasional antique, and there are larger, contemporary ones in the converted stables. ‘Modern, comfortable and quiet’, the latter have a slate floor, and spacious bathroom. All rooms have robes, home-made biscuits and Bath House accessories. Staff are ‘enthusiastic, helpful and charming’. (John Saul, David Birnie)
