Good Hotel Guide Review
In a thriving village amid rolling farmland this thatched dining-pub-with-rooms has been made over in the signature style of sister inns The Talbot, Mells, and The Beckford Arms, Tisbury (see entries). Our inspectors found the bar and restaurant, with central fireplace, ‘splendidly atmospheric’, furnished ‘in keeping with the 17th-century building’. Bedrooms have a rustic, dressed-down chic, with seagrass flooring, Welsh blankets, comfy armchairs, Bramley toiletries; and hooks and hangers in place of furniture. One has an in-room claw-footed bath and separate shower room. A family room has bunk beds for children. Philip Verden’s frequently changing menus range from such classics as cider-battered fish and chips and pie of the day to more adventurous dishes, with a vegan option. ‘Roasted brill on a bed of peas and spinach was spectacularly tasty.’ At breakfast there are home-baked pastries, home-made toasted granola, a full Somerset with pork and marmalade sausage and black pudding. The efficient waiting staff have ‘charisma, charm, a sense of humour’. In summer, children can run in the garden; in winter, adults enjoy mulled wine by the roaring fires.
