Comfortable streamside inn with enticing food, real ales, attractive dining bar and fine grounds; smart bedrooms
This is such a lovely setting right by the River Eye, and the handsome stone building also has spacious grounds with tables and chairs under parasols on terraces and lawns that sweep down to the water. The spreading bar area has several low-beamed linked rooms with well spaced tables on polished flagstones, a variety of seats from simple chairs to soft sofas and warm log fires. You'll also find mullioned windows, shelves of board games, a few carefully placed landscape pictures or stuffed fish and an air of understated refinement. Service is first class. Brakspears Bitter and Wychwood Hobgoblin on handpump, and a dozen good wines by the glass. The smart evening restaurant looks over the lawn and the sheep pasture beyond. Bedrooms are comfortable and stylish and make a good base for exploring the area; some are in the main house, some across the courtyard.
Bar food times: 12-3, 6.30-9; afternoon tea 3-5.30
Tempting food includes ham hock terrine with piccalilli purée, salmon and dill roulade with caviar and charred cucumber, risotto of sweet potato and kale, local sausages with crispy shallots and gravy, moules marinière, blade of beef with horseradish mash and parsnips, chicken supreme with mushrooms, quinoa and pancetta, chargrilled steak with house fries and a choice of sauce, and puddings such as chocolate and Horlicks mousse with vanilla ice-cream and clementine crème brûlée.
