Lovely old coaching inn, recently updated. Located in the pretty town centre, parking to rear
Our room was on the ground floor directly off the courtyard where there are tables for eating etc so we wondered if it might be a bit noisy but no problem when we stayed.
Our room was large with a lovely modern bathroom, comfy bed and lots of pillows. The bathroom was very clean. The towels were a bit tired, some fluffier ones would have been nice - but acceptable. The carpet in the room was a little marked near the door - maybe a door mat would be a good idea as it opens directly to the outside. Also a stain near the bed (looked like a dropped cup of coffee) but properly hoovered etc.
We had an excellent meal in the conservatory in the evening. Heritage beetroot(white!) with goats cheese in breadcrumbs, lamb rump followed by lemon tart ( always my favourite but this was really good!).
At first we were seated near a fairly noisy family group but we asked to move and the new table was quickly sorted - and was fine. Service was a little slow but we were not in a hurry so it didn't matter.
Breakfast next day was the only weak point - being a Bank Holiday everyone arrived together at 9.30 and it was a bit chaotic, queue for tables plus lack of cereal bowls, hot food items etc
This was a shame as the actual breakfast was good. Lovely bacon, gorgeous yogurt with fruit compote, good wholemeal bread for toast.
WiFi provided but a bit weak and patchy.
We read comments about the church bells - well we could hear them faintly in the distance but no disturbance to us!
A good overnight stay - just a little attention to detail needed particularly at breakfast. We will certainly return! less
