Contemporary décor in old building, first class food, good wine list and lovely garden with attractive terraces; bedrooms

Our readers enjoy their visits to this family-run 17th-c inn very much, with warm praise in particular for the excellent food and fine choice of drinks. The relaxing bar has inglenook fireplaces, beams in low ceilings and timbering with Adnams Bitter, Fullers London Pride and Sharps Doom Bar on handpump, 28 wines by the glass from a well described list, a dozen malt whiskies, Weston's cider and good coffee from the long green-slate bar counter; staff are courteous and helpful. There are leather armchairs and comfortable wall seats, a mix of elegant wooden and high-backed leather dining chairs around attractive tables on polished oak boards or sandstone flooring, original artwork and fresh flowers; background music. French windows open from the restaurant on to various terraces with individual furnishings and pretty flowering pots and beds. The chalet-style bedrooms (just across a courtyard in a separate building) are comfortable and well equipped; continental breakfasts are included and taken in your room. The Birch at Woburn is under the same ownership.
