Good Hotel Guide Review
‘What a fab place,’ say Guide inspectors in 2016, who arrived on a jolly quiz night at Sue Burdge’s ‘wonderful’ village pub-with-rooms. The ‘lovely’ old building – with its blackened beams, antiques and inglenook fireplace – is reached down a convolution of country lanes. Inside, bedrooms are accessed through the bar (‘very trusting, with all those wonderful whiskies on display!’) and up ‘quite steep stairs’. ‘The rooms are delightful – a lovely place to rest on arrival, and return to after a scrumptious dinner. Ours, glamorous and elegant, had a supremely comfy bed and plenty of magazines. A decanter of amontillado had been set out to welcome us.’ Book in for dinner: ‘The fabulous food makes this place a destination in its own right.’ Among the ‘attractively presented’ dishes: ‘sensational home-smoked salmon; an excellent potato-and-leek veggie pie, with a jug of yummy tarragon sauce; perfect rhubarb crumble’. (‘A good selection of draft cider suits the high-class pub food well.’) Make your choice the night before for a ‘stupendous’ breakfast. ‘Can you give a César for devilled kidneys?’ (Humphrey and Frances Norrington, and others)
