“A favourite out-of-town spot” – this spruced-up Georgian coaching inn “right next to beautiful Fonthill Park” offers “a good choice of well-prepared food”, although, with its “beautiful dining room”, it’s really “more a restaurant than a pub”. From the same boutique stable as the Lord Poulett Arms and Talbot Inn in Somerset.

“You’d struggle to find a better country pub” than this notably posh ivy-clad classic “in gorgeous surroundings” on the edge of the Fonthill Estate. There’s a “varied menu ranging from pub food to gourmet”.

A “delightful posh pub”, which “draws diners from miles around” with its “short and precise menu sourced from local ingredients and suppliers”. It’s an “accommodating” place (including to children), but strikes a couple of reporters as “a bit self-conscious in its tweedy smartness – the ‘county’ set comes here!”

“A hidden gem in the countryside that’s worth finding”; “I’m not sure what more you could ask for in a country pub for Sunday lunch… it has a lovely relaxed atmosphere, an open fire, dogs sleeping, and EXCEPTIONAL roasts”.
