Good Hotel Guide Review

Amid stone walls and wooded lanes deep in the Wye valley, Chris and Kirsty Harrod’s Michelin-starred restaurant-with-rooms is liked for its ‘relaxing atmosphere’, ‘excellent, professional staff’ and ‘unpretentious, really super food’. ‘The unspoilt woods and countryside are an ideal position for chef/patron Chris to pursue his love of foraging for wild and unusual ingredients’ – and the results, including a sophisticated vegetarian menu, ‘surprise and delight’. Unusual herb combinations and garden flowers share culinary glory with locally grown produce in ‘fresh, modern, attractive’ dishes, perhaps roast Jerusalem artichokes, goat’s curd, forest findings, rosemary; organic Rhug Estate venison, smoked beets, celeriac. ‘Restful, well-decorated’ bedrooms, some recently refurbished, are the cherry on top. Choose well – a first-floor room was found to be ‘a good size’, while one on the second floor was called ‘small, but comfortable’. All, however, have a ‘comfy bed’, ‘good toiletries’ and ‘plenty of towels’. Breakfast brings ‘very freshly squeezed’ orange juice; an ‘interesting list’ of cooked dishes. ‘Absolutely spot-on.’ (P and JT, T and GA)

Guest comments

'A super restaurant-with-rooms. Lazarus greeted us with enthusiasm. Rooms are functional rather than luxurious, but well equipped. Comfortable bed, quality bedding, The bathroom had a big bath, walk-in shower - and a window. The food is delicious, the concepts are brilliant . ' - David Hampshire - January, 2018
'The situation is lovely. An ideal position for Chris to pursue his love of foraging for unusual ingredients. The midweek special offer was good value. We so enjoyed the cooking and the relaxing dining atmosphere. All was simply described but elaborately prepared....and delicious. Service was excellent. Breakfast had an interesting list of cooked dishes, mostly using local suppliers. A small but comfortable room on the second floor. ' - Pat and Jeremy Temple - April, 2015
'Chris Harrod and his team live up fully to the heritage. The building looks the same from the outside, but inside everything has been refreshed and redecorated. The dining room and bar area are brighter and airier, with well-designed lighting. Tables are well spaced and of a sensible size. Chris’s food is modern and delicious. All the guest rooms have been improved. Ours on the first floor was a good size, with a comfortable bed, two comfortable chairs, flat-screen TV. It isn’t a five-star hotel, but in its territory of “restaurant with rooms” it has worked out its approach and delivers it spot-on, not least because of its kind and helpful staff. ' - Tony and Ginny Ayers - March, 2015
