We started with drinks in the Badger- a fairly decent selection, followed by a meal (with more drinks). The food was outstanding! Then back into the bar for yet more drinks! I was sticking to Bourbon all night but some in our party were trying the different flavoured Gins. The rhubarb gin deserves a good mention.
Breakfast in the morning (rather hungover) was brilliant. Bit of yogurt and prunes with the choice of many dried additives- nuts and fruit etc followed by a full English. The sausage was amazing, not usually a sausage man, and the black pudding was out of this world! You could see and taste the pieces of barley in the pudding. I asked the waiting staff if I could find out where the BP was sourced and was given the details (wensleydale bacon co), ill defo be getting some ordered.
The only blip, as other reviewers have also mentioned, is the parking. Having to pay £12 to park after already paying for the room is a bit off. The car park is quite small and not really suited to bigger cars or, as we were in a transit, vans.
Would stay again though and take the family next time, thank you. less
