Good Hotel Guide Review
A ‘good value, friendly’ pub-with-rooms, with a ‘lovely, informal atmosphere’, the pleasingly updated 18th-century beer house has real ales, comfy seating, stripped wooden floors. Come summer, locals and residents decant on to the cheery terrace. Upstairs, ‘smart’ modern bedrooms (well stocked with ground coffee, old-fashioned sweets, ‘super toiletries’) have much personality: a pink-painted claw-footed bath; Beatles LP covers on a wall. Chef Tom Blake’s unpretentious gastropub menu exploits local produce for such dishes as Old Spot pork belly, fennel and sea salt crackling. ‘Breakfast is a real treat.’ Part of the Stay Original Company, like Timbrell’s Yard, Bradford-on-Avon (see Shortlist).
