FROM THE TABLE
FROM THE KITCHEN
The 15th century front of the hotel, known as The Inn, opens onto the High Street, and provides relaxed dining from 12.30pm until 3pm Monday to Friday, with local beers, open fires and oak beams. The library is a sanctuary for guests to enjoy a drink or a cup of tea, or play one of the board games. Its bookshelves are packed with poetry, short stories and novels by British authors, and there is a section dedicated to local history, flora and fauna. The library has a secret door that opens onto the restaurant.
