There is a varied dinner menu (we ate in the bar with a real fire burning away) and the duo of chicken and... More

A most welcoming hotel. Our room had a great view of the river wye. The staff were very helpful and most polite. They could not do enough for you. Had two meals in the restaurant and both were very enjoyable and reasonably priced. Would definitely stop here again.
