Good Hotel Guide Review

‘A hive of activity’, Clare and Charlie Garrard’s 17th-century thatched inn is well liked for its ‘excellent accommodation’, ‘enjoyable food’ and ‘efficient, professional staff’. ‘Certain O’Duigan, the energetic manager, capably divides his time between playing friendly host and managing the day-to-day affairs,’ said a guest in 2017. Within old stone walls, there are flagstone floors, exposed beams, logs for the fire; visitors help themselves to newspapers and board games. Bedrooms are across the garden, in an ‘immaculate, jaw-dropping’ conversion of a former barn. ‘Our ground-floor room, elegantly done out in pale grey and white, had stylish furnishings, abstract paintings and a generous hospitality tray with home-made biscuits. We slept well in the very comfortable bed.’ Join the locals for dinner in the ‘spacious, high-ceilinged’ dining room, where modern gastropub dishes might include venison tortellini, charred tenderstem, blue cheese cream; pan-fried gurnard, saffron potatoes, braised fennel, crab bisque. In the morning, take to the country lanes that wind all around: gardens and galleries are within easy reach; Glastonbury Tor is 25 minutes’ drive away.
