Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The shabby-chic style suits the relaxed atmosphere’ at this ‘fresh, appealing’ candidate, one of Robin Hutson’s sty of Pig hotels. At this Georgian manor in the Mendips, the young staff are ‘attentive and friendly’, and the ambience is informal and fun, say regular Guide correspondents this year. Deep sofas roost on stripped wooden floors, walls are hung with gilt-framed paintings, open fires crackle in cool weather. In the ‘stylish but casual’ conservatory dining room, chef Kamil Oseka makes use of the ‘high quality and variety of fruit and vegetables’ from the Victorian greenhouses and walled kitchen garden. His ‘straightforward and wholesome’ dishes might include potted Madgett’s Farm duck, rhubarb chutney; purple mizuna, garden pickles, chargrilled chicken. Bedrooms in the main house, coach house and garden cottages are equipped with a larder of snacks and an espresso machine. ‘Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a far-from-shabby bathroom.’ In the morning, garden-fresh feasting continues. ‘The breakfast buffet, with much home-grown produce on offer, was one of the best we’ve experienced.’ (John and Kay Patterson, and others)

Guest comments

'A beautiful building and fabulous kitchen garden. Large, comfortable bedrooms - not sure about the bath being in the bedroom, but I suppose this is how it has to be nowadays - but there was marmalade at breakfast ! Shabby chic style - which means quite expensive these days. The dining conservatory is like many modern places - noisy ! Stone floors, brick walls, wooden tables with old metal chairs. An atmosphere place. Rooms are expensive and breakfast is extra (£15); the food is reasonably priced by comparison. Very busy - trendy ! ' - Bill Wood - October, 2017
'We know and admire the Pigs. This one is excellent. ' - Chris and Erika Savory - March, 2017
'A delightful hotel set in extensive grounds surrounded by a deer park. The style is "shabby chic", making for a relaxed atmosphere. Our room in the main building was spacious and comfortable with a far from shabby bathroom. Many hotels boast a kitchen garden but this one is on an industrial scale, providing a high quality and variety of fruit and vegetables for the dining room and the breakfast buffet. The cooking style is straightforward and wholesome. No table d’hôte menu, just a carte which we prefer. The staff were attentive and friendly (and young). ' - John and Kay Patterson - October, 2016
