Good Hotel Guide Review
A beguilingly pretty 17th-century Bath stone inn with stone-mullioned windows and cascading wisteria, this gastropub-with-rooms with atmospheric beamed dining room is set in lovely gardens. There is ‘a genial grace to the setting’. House bedrooms, each named after a pear variety, mix contemporary furnishings with original features. Those in a barn conversion have statement wallpaper, comfy seating and a Fired Earth-tiled bathroom. Ground-floor Anjou has a shower; the rest have a bath/shower. A dog-friendly family suite has a king-size bed, two singles on a mezzanine, French doors to a patio. Extra touches include home-made biscuits and luxury toiletries. A larky spirit runs throughout, with jackdaw collections of knick-knacks. There are regular comedy nights, and hostess Jackie Cosens is definitely on the side of fun. They are serious, though, about seasonality and traceability. Chef/patron Adrian Jenkins buys from local farmers and growers, with fish from British waters, to create dishes such as fish pie topped with gratin rösti, or portobello mushroom Kiev burger with red onion marmalade. Breakfast eggs are laid by hens in clover.
