Lovely place.

We had a lovely time, food and staff great, handy for getting to local attractions. The only thing i can give bad feedback on was the lack of towels, we had only one hand towel in the room.

peaceful country inn.

Posted 17-Oct-2015
Cons: It is an old inn, and is full of atmosphere. Nothing should be changed.
Location: The location is a minute or two off the A1, in a leafy part, you could not hear the traffic at all. Pretty village to walk around.
We were celebrating being married 48 years, so booked into Cook and Barker. We'd been there for dinner and lunch on several occasions, but had never stayed overnight. The bedrooms are in an annex, just a few steps across the yard. There were steep stairs to climb to the first floor. There was a king sized comfortable bed (unfortunately though it was not a memory-foam which we are used to). We booked into early bird 5-7pm, which was excellent value. The inn suddenly became busy, as many couples and groups of people descended for this early bird dinner. Breakfast menu had a wide variety of choices on offer.

A restaurant with rooms

Posted 23-Sep-2015
Pros: Food portions were good, breakfast was good also.
Location: No comment we were just passing through on our way home from a holiday in Scotland using the A1 and avoiding the M6.
It's a pleasant place to stay and eat, a bit overpriced for what you get, but about the same quality as a Premier Inn.

Beautiful Pub and Restaurant

Posted 20-Aug-2015 on Hotels
Stayed here the night before a friends wedding and absolutely fell in love with the pub. We had dinner in the restaurant which was excellent, I can honestly say I have never been served a larger steak in my life, you definitely wouldn't complain about portion size here and it was cooked to perfection. Staff we very attentive, friendly and helpful with directions. Whilst there was certainly nothing wrong with the accommodation, the room was a good size, comfy bed, fantastic shower, it was a little disappointing in comparison to the restaurant and bar area. I note the Inn does advertise free WIFI which was intermittent in the bar area and no-existant in the annex. This wasn't a huge issue but i do feel it should not be advertised if it hardly ever works. I would definitely return but would aim for accommodation in the pub itself rather than the annex.
