Summary

The “attractive dining room” of a boutique hotel in an old water mill provides a “gorgeous setting” with “serene views”. Results from the kitchen can be “delicious” too, but it suffered from inconsistent reports again this year, including of sometimes “confused” service.

Summary

“A little gem” in a “romantic” old mill overlooking a large pond; even those who quibble that the cooking is a “mite too clever for its own good” say it’s “a beautiful location with good food”.

"Saw the reviews so thought I ought to visit. The building itself is very well preserved and presented with lovely grounds too. The restaurant is upstairs which wasn’t instantly obvious. Staff were very polite and helpful. I was, at the time (13.30) the only customer, so personalised service! The menu isn’t huge but good options meant it was perfect for me. There were significant similarities between the amuse bouche and the starter. Starter was a lovely cured sea trout, maybe slightly strong pesto but otherwise good. Main was a Red Poll sirloin, cooked exactly as I requested, with well cooked chips. Dessert was Paris Brest pastry with egg custard caramelised apple and tea ice cream. After I had finished my dessert I did have to wait quite a long time as it appeared staff were away downstairs. Toilets very clean service mostly very good, a few little tweaks and it could be excellent. Was it worth the 160 mile round trip? A slightly qualified yes"

"We were a little disappointed in the very short menu - only four choices of main course and starter. The food was OK but not exceptional; nicely cooked and presented but nothing special. The service was very friendly and professional. Lovely setting and intimate too. We will go back."
