Good Hotel Guide Review

‘We loved the atmosphere, the amazing food and the beautiful bedrooms.’ Watch the ducks whizz by on the river, as did recent guests, from the bedrooms of this popular gastropub-with-rooms. In the thatch-roofed pub, chef/patrons Guy and Brittany Manning win rave reviews for their informal modern British menu, which uses uber-local ingredients such as home-grown greens and eggs from home-reared hens. ‘Their “Taste of Autumn” menu was a feast of flavours and textures, combined with some really interesting wines. All was explained by knowledgeable and friendly staff.’ (Michelin inspectors come to the same, contented conclusion – the pub has had a star since 2013.) Across the road, each bedroom in the Troutbeck Guest House has a private deck and views of the River Avon and countryside. ‘Our room had been decorated with enthusiasm and flair. In the bathroom: special toiletries in big jars, and a super shower over the bath.’ The morning meal is worth waking for. ‘Breakfast was beautifully presented, with some unusual ingredients and lovely home-made breads and jams.’ (Jackie Tunstall-Pedoe, TS)

Guest comments

'The village is delightful. The food is exceptional. Our room was very well appointed, with excellent bathroom and other facilities. A splendid breakfast. One of t he best inns we have stayed in. ' - Chris & Erika Savory - January, 2018
'A wonderful place. We loved he atmosphere, the food and the comfortable room. It had been designed with enthusiasm and flair. ' - Jackie Tunsrtall-Pedoe - September, 2016
'We were celebrating a December birthday so decided to stay the night rather than avoid wine and drive home in the dark. What a great decision. The rib of beef was top class as were the chips and the plaice goujons starter. Our room in its Troutbeck Guest House was a joy: a delightful riverside terrace and outlook and elegant decor without being fussy. Simply the best shower on a heated floor; indeed every last detail both practical and the tasteful had been anticipated. ' - Richard Owen - December, 2014
