Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Our third visit.’ Readers tempted back this year to celebrity chef Stephen Terry’s restaurant-with-rooms – a reinvention of a ‘grotty roadside pub’– found everything to their liking. Rooms occupy a timber-clad annexe around a courtyard. ‘Ours was fine, modern, well equipped, not very big but perfectly adequate, with welcome air conditioning.’ Most have countryside views, a bath with shower, some have a walk-in shower. All have Welsh textiles, a Roberts Radio – but the big attraction is the food. Mr Terry has had a long career in Michelin-starred kitchens, gaining his own first star aged 25, but here the style is simpler, more accessible, with plenty of choice. In the relaxed, spacious restaurant our readers enjoyed a ‘sublime’ fig and rocket salad; mackerel fillets, deep-fried new potatoes, green beans, lentil, rocket; summer pudding. To ‘the buzz of contented diners’, another reader adds a murmur of dissent, a tale of a family celebration dinner far short of expectations (when booking, he was not informed Mr Terry was away). However, our happy three-time visitor concludes, ‘Staff were good, it’s not expensive, we will be back.’ (Peter Anderson, and others)

Guest comments

'Usual high standards. The rooms are modern with plenty of storage space. Ours had a comfortable bed and overlooked farmland. It was very quiet. Walk-in monsoon shower The usual issue with insufficient drying space for two bath towels. Our room didn’t have air con - night-time temperatures were above 18 degrees. There was a portable unit though which helped. The food is excellent;; quality and inventiveness stand out. The portions are generous. If planning a pudding then either go without a starter or have two two starters ; the puddings are worth making room for, Breakfast was ok but lacked a fruit option. The staff are excellent, though service can be a little slow at times. Overall, well worth a visit. We have been four times and will certainly return ' - Peter Anderson - July, 2018
'Our third visit. The room was fine, modern, well equipped, not very big but perfectly adequate and with the welcome addition of air conditioning since our last visit. ould have done with more storage space though. Nice bathroom. The food was excellent. Huge portions. So on the second night we had two starter portions . This left room for pudding, again, excellent. Staff were all good, and it isn't expensive ' - Peter Anderson - August, 2017
