This 17th-century coaching inn has been welcoming visitors for over 200 years. Its current reincarnation, as a luxury hotel in a sophisticated market town, is a delight for foodies. The all-day restaurant is a buzzing place, full of ladies who lunch, deeply efficient staff and excellent food, from fine dining to a home-cooked pie and good local ale at the bar. There are plenty of places to unwind – lounges with comfy seating areas and blazing fires, a restaurant in the conservatory, a terrace with a fire pit, and two bars – one for champagne, the other cosy and overlooking the lovely St Mary’s church. Luxurious bedrooms and swanky bathrooms await upstairs.
Inspector David: A place that impresses with its sense of history, but doesn’t feel stuffy in the least. I’d be as happy popping in for a pie as I would for a champagne cocktail.
