Pulled off the main road and had a delightful stay in this modernised period hotel. Lovely meal, great beer and an after dinner wander along the High Street.

Visited for lunch and was amazed at the well-kept historic interior - bar room, beautiful library and airy restaurant too. Excellent ales, gourmet food (had to try rabbit Ballantine which I'd never heard of, and the tomato panacota, and my partner had a huge starter portion of whitebait followed by the tastiest pork faggots and mash). Would definitely return and... More

Excellent food with the best Steak in ages, great service and good beer. Their 'purchaser' clearly knows what they are doing and where to source the best steak from. I chose my Steak from the Specials board (as opposed to the one on the regular menu) and it had a truly superb flavour. My wife and kids food was also... More

Still a very good standard. The Haddock and chips were great as was the cheese board. Cheery, polite staff a great place to chill, eat and drink.

After a weekend stopping at The King's Head (a wonderful old coaching inn, 4-poster room was great) four of us stopped for Sunday lunch before setting off home. I've eaten quite a few sunday roasts at pubs/hotels and this was probably the best. Beautiful beef, Yorshire pudding to die for, good roadt potatoes and veg - and one of my... More

Very atmospheric and good menu choice. I visited without pre booking and although couldn't be accommodated in the dining room (which was fully booked - it was Sunday lunchtime) this was no loss as I sat in the lovely library bar area at the front of the hotel. I chose the lamb meal and was not disappointed with both taste... More

Authentic old inn with cosy rooms. Great shower with nice toiletries. Warm, friendly and efficient service in restaurant and reception. Stairs carpet needs changing but other than that spotless clean and comfy bed.

A group of seven of us enjoyed dinner in this restaurant. The service was good, and there was a pleasant atmosphere. The menu is not large, but covers a reasonable variety of food. Perhaps it could be improved by adding a couple of 'dishes of the day' other than 'pie of the day'!

Thank Jenny C
