Good Hotel Guide Review
Look out for the ‘stunning spire’ of St Mary’s church on the approach to this ‘enchanting village’. It’s a divine landmark that leads believers to the ‘very best hospitality’ and ‘outstanding food’ at James and Kate Mackenzie’s pub-with-rooms, report Guide inspectors in 2017. Past the ‘modest country pub exterior’, there’s a ‘warm, friendly’ welcome, and the Michelin-starred cooking that has people ‘chafing at the bit to get in’. The traditional bar, with its dark beams, open fire, and copper pots hanging, is just the spot for sandwiches and hand-pulled ales; in the restaurant, the chef/patron’s daily specials might include pea and mint ravioli, Yorkshire Fine Fettle cheese, pea shoots, nettle; ‘a perfectly grilled steak’. ‘Well-appointed’ bedrooms, each with a patio, are set around a ‘beautifully maintained’ herb garden. ‘Our super-king-size bed was adorned with a luxurious wool throw; there was an efficient shower in the sizeable bathroom. Smart touches included a modern chandelier and a striking sunray mirror.’ Mornings, the pre-ordered breakfast ‘wins universal plaudits’: chilled juices, yogurt and fruits; ‘golden eggs and salty bacon on home-baked bread’.
