It's an idyllic location on the quiet cross-roads by the village green with an a very friendly welcome, even from the locals. It's great that they'll chat to you on a daily basis while you're there and helps make the time there as good as it was (especially for a single traveler). The food is especially good, if just priced...

Amazing food - 10 out of 10 to the chef. Heading for fine dining, not cheap but fair price for this quality and every mouthful a delight. Cosy candlelit restaurant, sometimes quiet as people often eat in the bar but don't be put off - it's no reflection on the food and service. Personally after a hard day walking I...

Stayed as a couple over the Easter weekend along with many friends. Rooms immaculate with quality furniture/fittings. Staff the most friendly and helpful you could ever meet. Exceedingly relaxed atmosphere and really super restaurant meals and fabulous breakfast. Really good value for money and definitely classier than the other option in Exford.
