Its only once a year, so we normally book a night away with a meal and push the boat out a bit.This was a lovely little hotel separate to the pub. We had a ground floor room with a beautiful view. It was very spacious, excellent shower, nice deep bath, tea/coffee facilities with homemade biscuits, a mini bar, wi-fi, hairdryer etc and massive lovely towels, not to forget the large comfortable bed. (and a brilliant fan, which was needed in the heat). The staff were very helpful, polite and friendly.
The pub has a large patio area, brilliant for those sunny evenings and serves great food, although slightly higher priced then we would eat out for, the standard was excellent. Having said that we had 2 starters , 2 mains of which the salmon melted in your mouth and the haddock was massive, 1 dessert because I was completely full, 1 coffee and 2 drinks, which came to £65 and the quality and service was fantastic.
You must book evening meals, as we only had a choice of 6.30 or 9pm a week before our stay, but in tasting the food we now know why.
We were not hurried along and then went for a nice walk to St Mary's church, just up the road.
Breakfast was very good with lots of choice and brought to your table, which filled me up for the rest of the day.
After checking out we went for a lovely walk to enjoy the countryside as there are lots of footpaths in the area to enjoy the views.
