Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The buzz of contented diners fills the air’ at this ‘enjoyable, excellent’ restaurant-with-rooms in an ‘attractive rural setting’ outside the market town. Here, chef/patron Stephen Terry and his wife, Joanna, have transformed a former roadside pub into a ‘popular local destination’ that’s ‘well worth the detour’. The bar and trio of dining rooms are ‘unpretentious yet stylish’: there are rafters and old beams; candles and linen napkins on mismatched wooden tables; copper pans hanging by the wood stove. ‘Provenance is everything’ on the long menu – ‘and the many interesting dishes make decisions difficult’. Try, perhaps, hot and cold Severn and Wye valley smoked salmon, pickled cucumber; crispy shoulder and ragout of Brecon lamb. ‘Nothing disappoints.’ ‘Comfortable modern bedrooms’ are in a Scandinavian-style courtyard annexe to the rear. ‘Ours had smart fittings and furnishings and ample storage. Kilner jars with coffee and lots of different teas were supplied; there were design books and magazines as well. Adjustable shutters allowed plenty of light from the floor-to-ceiling windows.’ Breakfast, a sit-down affair, is prepared to order.

Guest comments

'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. Could 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 We will be back ' - Peter Anderson - August, 2017
