An “outstanding” restaurant-with-rooms that’s not just “by far the best place to eat (and stay) for miles around”, but of a quality that’s “very unexpected” – chef-proprietors “Stéphane Borie & Sarah Francis used to work at the Waterside Inn, and you get very similar quality at a fraction of the price!”
