Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The restaurant, the room and, in particular, the hospitality exceeded our expectations,’ say returning visitors this year. Alison and Fabrice Bouteloup’s restaurant-with-rooms occupies a red-stone former coaching inn, in a pretty conservation village. Hands-on hosts, the owners are ‘attentive but informal’; their staff are ‘efficient and friendly’. A grandson of farmers, the French-born chef/patron is praised for his ‘tasty local flavours’. In the dining room (‘attractively decorated to reflect the rural surroundings’), cuisine grand-mère meets modern European cooking in his daily-changing menus. A typical dish: saddle of lamb, shoulder croquette, Puy lentils, honeyed parsnips. Alison Bouteloup, who has a background in the wine trade, discusses grape varieties and vintages with aplomb. And so to bed, in one of the ‘spotlessly clean and inviting’ bedrooms. These vary in size and aspect. At breakfast, there’s ‘plenty of toast’ – Fabrice Bouteloup’s bread is great with home-made jam and marmalade; ‘delicious’ cooked dishes.

Guest comments

'It describes itself accurately as a restaurant-with-rooms but the restaurant, the rooms and, in particular, the hospitality (attentive but informative) exceeded our expectations. ' - SJ - September, 2016
'A great asset is the very efficient and friendly way you are treated by all staff. The rooms are decorated in neutral colours with a slightly patterned neutral carpet; ours had splashes of red which lifted the decoration. Everything was spotlessly clean. The bathroom was small but functional. At dinner, there was a good atmosphere. Only four choices for each course. We like this as you know it’s freshly cooked. The chef uses a lot of local produce. We were served efficiently and in a very friendly manner. We never felt rushed in any way. Brrakfast was delicious ' - JT - March, 2016
'Despite being on the corner of the main road our lovely, huge room and bathroom were very quiet on a Saturday night. The restaurant was quite buzzy, but with very good service and a bistro atmosphere. ' - Frances Thomas - August, 2012
