Good Hotel Guide Review
There’s a ‘lovely, informal atmosphere’ at this ‘friendly’ pub-with-rooms, down the street from the old, stone-built village church. The agreeably updated 18th-century beer house has stripped wooden floors, comfy seats, local ales and newspapers; a sunny terrace is just the ticket on a warm day. ‘Smart’ modern bedrooms on the first and second floors are well stocked with ground coffee for the cafetière, old-fashioned sweets, ‘super toiletries’. Quirky touches lend personality: a pink-painted claw-foot bath; a vintage shipping trunk serving as a coffee table. At mealtimes, choose from the simple-yet-sophisticated gastropub menu, and ask to eat inside or out. ‘Breakfast is a real treat with lots of options’, including home-cured bacon and freshly baked bread. Part of the small Stay Original Company; see also Timbrell’s Yard, Bradford-on-Avon, and The White Hart, Somerton (Shortlist entries).
