Good Hotel Guide Review
We enjoyed it greatly.’ For centuries a focal point in this prosperous market town, this ever-evolving inn has been a hospitable spot. ‘Smartly refurbished’ with modern additions, it is run by ‘friendly, professional staff’, report readers this year. Individually decorated bedrooms retain characterful features such as exposed beams, sloping ceiling; loft apartments, over two floors, have a sitting area and solid oak flooring. In the clapboard coach house opposite, two large suites blend old with new (classic decor; a TV over the bath). Throughout the day, breakfasters, brunchers, lunchers and diners pile on to the leather seating and stripy banquettes in the sophisticated brasserie for ‘excellent’ meals.
