We loved the Plymouth room with the big bath! Very clean and comfortable. Very delicious supper with sirloin steak and lamb of the best quality. Breakfast in the cafe and a wander round the farm shop, topped it all off.

Loving the new make over and the food is still just as delicious. We had 3 courses and drinks for under £40 per person. Nicely spaced out tables and good Covid processes in place. We don’t get to get together often being from all over the UK now but we always love our girly catch ups at the Clive. See you again soon.

We booked this after seeing the great reviews but were very disappointed. Maybe it was just the room we had which was right on the car park whereas the others seemed to be round a courtyard. The room itself was fine but the setting spoiled it for us - you would have to keep the shutters down on the glass doors or look out at the car park. It felt like a motel especially as it’s situated slightly back from a busy main road. As such I feel it’s overpriced; unfortunately we were unable to obtain a refund. I can’t comment on anything else such as food or service as we didn’t actually stay but don’t want anyone else to have the same experience.

Room was a great size and really clean and nice. The food was good and sensibly priced. Nice bar area for a chill out. The best of all were the staff who were really friendly and attentive. We would happily go back
