Good Hotel Guide Review
In the 13th century, a hostelry on this spot provided sleep and sustenance for monks on pilgrimage to Canterbury. These days, Daniel and Hannah Hall continue the tradition of hospitality in their ‘lovely’ 16th-century country inn. The timber-framed building is full of ‘traditional character’; in the popular bar, local tipples are served amid medieval carvings, ‘massive beams’ and inglenook fireplaces. In the oak-panelled restaurant, ‘delicious pub grub is attentively served to well-scrubbed tables’. Characterful well-appointed bedrooms, all sloping floors and antique furnishings, have chic toiletries, a digital radio. Across the courtyard, two rooms have French doors on to a private garden. Breakfast has freshly squeezed juices, morning baked pastries, good cooked choices.
