Harden's survey result
Blessed with a picture-perfect village setting, this well-established hotel restaurant (nowadays under the Brownsword group) is a light, airy space whose fine dining food – afternoon tea to eight-course tasting menus – makes the most of local and foraged ingredients. It attracted limited feedback this year, but all positive.
“Set in beautiful grounds and in one of the UK’s most beautiful villages” – locations don’t come more picturebook than this well-known hotel (nowadays in the hands of the Brownsword group), which – on limited feedback – provides an “impeccable all round experience”. Afternoon tea here is also recommended: “croquet on the lawn anyone?”
Reopened in March 2016 after a “really excellent refurb’” (and minor name change), this Brownsword Hotel group outpost now has a ritzy country-chic interior to match its manor house setting, sweeping lawns and “gorgeous food”.
This Gidleigh Park-affiliated hotel (fka Lower Slaughter Manor) reopened in March 2016 after a country-chic refurb and a slight change of name; according to early reports it’s “still great, if not as casually elegant as before”, and you can’t beat the “marvellous” countryside setting.
