We went for the cider and BBQ Sunday event and it was perfect. A lovely warm welcome in a lovely building. We stayed overnight in the Meadowsweet room which was far better than we were anticipating. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was the nicest, freshest full English that we have ever had. Amazing friendly staff too Highly...

A friendly village pub close to several cycle routs. Yorkshire pudding & gravy on the bar, espresso and a pint of water. The perfect cycling stop? Sunny enclosed courtyard at rear with space for bikes. Lively on a Friday evening too.

I stayed with my other half, who, incidentally, became my fiance later on the day we left, and we both found it to be great. There was some flexibility with rooms - on Valentine's eve, of all nights,...

The room was charming, clean and comfortable. We slept well and were treated to an amazing breakfast. Erica and her staff were welcoming and helpful. It was excellent value and I would recommend this for a relaxing stay in a beautiful area.
