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)
