A delightful hotel, beautifully appointed. We called in for breakfast set at £15. We got a full English, more toast than we could manage, coffee and juice. All well served in a lovely breakfast room. 100% recommend.

I have visited this little restaurant often and just love it for its age and cozy atmosphere - and in the past, for its food. Most disappionted with our very mediocre meal with a huge price tag. Hopefully they'll sort their chef out very soon...More
