Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Attentive service’ and ‘delicious pub grub’ attract locals and visitors to Daniel and Hannah Hall’s ‘lovely’ thatch-roofed 16th-century country inn, across the road from the village church. (The monthly pub quiz is an attraction, too.) ‘We like the fact that it sticks to its traditional character.’ Sip a local ale in the popular bar amid medieval carvings, ‘massive beams’ and inglenook fireplaces; order off a ‘really inviting menu’ in the oak-panelled restaurant. ‘Well-equipped bedrooms’ have character in their sloping floors and antique furnishings, but it’s not all olde-worlde: chic toiletries and a digital radio are among the amenities. Two rooms across the courtyard have French doors opening on to a private garden. Good choice at breakfast. 8 miles SW of Peterborough.
