Good Pub Guide Recommended

Impressive place with an easy-going atmosphere, open fires and antiques, real ales, interesting food and friendly staff; bedrooms

There aren't many places in this Guide that are reached through a 1,000-acre deer park! Nor many that are in such a grand country house. But it's part of the fun and certainly rather individual. Through a large entrance hall is the simply furnished bar with dark pubby chairs and tables on a wooden floor, a log fire, a long settle beside a pool table, and high stools against the mahogany counter where they serve Adnams Broadside and Southwold, Woodfordes Wherry and a guest beer on handpump, 13 wines by the glass, 16 malt whiskies and two ciders; staff are chatty and helpful. Heavy curtains line an open doorway into a dining room, where vast antlers hang above a big log fire (they often cook over this) and there are straightforward chairs around scrubbed tables on stone tiles. A lounge, with comfortable old leather armchairs and a sofa on a fine rug in front of yet another log fire, has genuine antiques and standard lamps. The restaurant is more formal with candles and napery, and there are also two homely sitting rooms for hotel residents. Many of the walls are painted dark red and hung with assorted artwork and big mirrors; background music, darts, TV and board games. The lovely bedrooms(designed by Robert Kime) have many original fittings, but no TV.
