This is a hidden gem! My partner and I have been numerous times for Sunday lunch and the standard, value and service is exceptional. I cannot praise this place highly enough. Along with the fantastic Sunday lunch which offers plenty of choice and caters for gluten free, there is also a wonderful view of climbers on 'High Tor'. The restaurant... More

Enjoyed a NYE meal here, 5 course dinner, couldn't fault it, staff were friendly and helpful. I couldn't manage my delicious chocolate cake, so they let me take it back to our room.

Wonderful friendly staff. We arrived a bit early but we were allowed to check in anyway. Everywhere is clean and fresh and well kept, feels like it could have been refurbed just yesterday. Room was big, lovely bathroom, comfortable bed. Heating is a bit fierce but easily controlled. Drinks in the bar not too expensive, you always expect to pay... More

He was back on duty again in the morning and had great advice... More

I really enjoyed the food here, was fresh and nice varied menu. The wine list is good and really well priced which is nice! Chef is always quote accommodating with mixing it up a bit too food wise!
