Good Hotel Guide Review
‘A great, quirky hotel.’ Believed to be the former meeting spot of an altruistic society of misfits and artists (the Odd Fellows), this listed neoclassical mansion today embraces the eccentric. Typewriters climb the hotel’s reception area; hand-painted birds and foxes eye one another across oak panelling in the restaurant. In the main house and a modern annexe, bedrooms have the same quirky character: twin roll-top baths or a circular bed here, Randolph Caldecott illustrations there. Sip cocktails in the ‘secret garden’ or the flamboyant lounge bar before sampling new chef Daniel Beech’s imaginative, uncomplicated dishes (perhaps red mullet, brown shrimp linguine, broccoli pollen, romanesco). A bagged breakfast (croissant, natural yogurt, fresh orange juice, fruit) may be magicked to the bedroom door.
