Good Hotel Guide Review
Pile in for the jolly quiz night, or sample one of the whiskies from an astonishing collection at Sue Burdge’s 17th-century dwelling house–turned–lively village pub-with-rooms. ‘It seems like a film set from a period romp, but this is the real thing: low beams and parchment-stained plaster; a cornucopia of maps, prints and pictures of times past; welcome murmurings, chit-chat and laughter in the background.’ In the characterful dining room, choose from the short menu of ‘amazing-value’ pub dishes, perhaps home-made steak-and-ale pie with ‘a crackling crust’. Afterwards, pass through the log fire-warmed bar, and mount steep stairs to the ‘well-appointed’, oak-beamed bedrooms (some are small). ‘Our delightful room had a supremely comfy mattress topper and crisp pillowcases, plus plenty of current magazines and a dear little decanter of amontillado.’ In the morning, breakfast on ‘masses’ of home-smoked salmon and scrambled eggs; ‘award-worthy’ devilled kidneys. Sister outfit The Cridford Inn, Trusham (see entry), enters the Guide this year. (Evan Morgans, F and HN)
