Good Hotel Guide Review

Brothers Charles and Edmund Inkin invite you to eat, drink, sleep. Pray and love, too, by all means: there is a free-and-easy vibe at this dining pub, ‘a truly wonderful place’. Set in a beautiful landscape of rivers and mountains, it was the first of a trio that includes The Old Coastguard, Mousehole, and The Gurnard’s Head, Zennor, England (see entries), and established the style, with shabby-chic dining areas (the tack room, library, Aga room, locals bar), and an all-round, ‘happy-making atmosphere’. The bedrooms have a comfortable bed, ground coffee, fresh milk, ‘lovely’ shortbread, cut flowers, Bramley toiletries. There’s no TV but a Roberts radio, ‘plenty of magazines’, and new improved broadband access. The cooking has a similar elegant simplicity, with extensive use of home-grown fruit and vegetables, from heritage tomatoes to pink rhubarb. A day’s menu might include lamb belly, peas, courgette, fondant potato; sea trout, fregola, little gem. ‘The food was really good, the staff were very welcoming to our dog.’ If you’re staying more than two days, they say, and if there is something you especially fancy to eat, let them know. ‘I’d happily stay here again.’ (SH, CS)
