CHARACTER & STYLE

Prior to its restoration, this Grade II-listed building had been closed for five years. Despite contemporary touches, such as brightly-coloured chairs in the restaurant, it retains plenty of character with exposed timbers, beams and uneven walls. The restaurant is lined with tartan and leather banquettes, while the old wood and zinc-topped bar has green walls and pendant lighting.

Staff are friendly and service is efficient. There's a small beer garden and free car parking on-site.

Key amenities: ensuite bathroom, hairdryer, tea and coffee-making facilities, bottled water, iron and ironing board, TV, free Wi-Fi

Food & Drink

Expect Modern British dishes of a really high standard (there's also a simpler bar menu). There's a really good selection of drinks too - from local beers, ciders and gin to the 74 wines on the wine list, including ones from Lebanon, China and Romania. The ten-course tasting menu was amazing and the langoustine bisque had such complex, rich flavours.

Bar: open Wed-Sun from 12pm.
