Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The tranquillity is very appealing’ at the Stainsby family’s 18th-century coaching inn-turned-gastropub in a hamlet on the slopes of the Washburn valley. Its nominator for a full entry in this year’s Guide received a ‘friendly welcome’ and was checked in at the bar. The mix of traditional and contemporary interiors includes beams, flagstone floors, a brick fireplace alongside ceiling spotlights, gilded mirrors. Quite spacious bedrooms are supplied with upmarket Harrogate toiletries, ‘excellent towels and bathrobes’. A first-floor suite had ‘a beamed living space’ and a bedroom with four-poster, a ‘gleaming bathroom with a monsoon shower fitting’ over an awkwardly deep bath. ‘All the accommodation was obviously very recently and tastefully fitted out.’ The mobile phone signal was ‘erratic’, Internet access proved elusive. The residents’ lounge is in the adjoining cottage. Dinner, in the ‘intimate’ restaurant, served by a ‘prompt and professional young waitress’, was ‘the work of a very competent chef’. Praise for braised, shredded duck leg; pork fillet, braised pig’s cheek, celeriac purée, pickled apple, red cabbage. At breakfast, muzak was an irritation, and cooked dishes trumped porridge and fruit salad. (Robert Gower)
