Silver Winner 2017
Judges comments - July/August 2017
'When I arrived we had a lovely welcome, I was shown my room and we were told to have a drink in the bar, our table was ready and I could speak to someone to run through the menu. They were expecting me and remembered I had phoned to discuss my allergies before booking.'
'The menu was VAST! It was at first hard to choose, I'm not used to so much choice. I had a smoked salmon starter and a roast lamb main which was just melt in the mouth, cooked to perfection. The waitress was helpful but did have to go a check a lot of things. They let me check the wine although did look a little bemused as to why there might be dairy in wine! There were lots of gluten free options. Fewer dairy free options but plenty of choice – and they also made sure mine meal was freefrom celery and tomato.'
'The food in the evening was really tasty but rustic and simple. Home cooked but very lovely. Sadly, the breakfast in the morning did not match dinner....'
'Very good value. Bit of a treat staying in a four poster bed for just £75! Very clean, nice decor, very comfortable bed and crisp luxurious linen.'
