Fodor's Review

This half-timber 14th-century lodging has rambling public rooms, roaring fireplaces, and corridors so low that cushions are strategically placed on beams. Most of the individually styled bedrooms have rich oak cabinets and original wood paneling. Bathrooms have been fashioned around ancient timbers and hidden rooms. The bar, which is a popular local meeting place, is full of memorabilia from the days when this was a favorite pub of American airmen stationed here during

World War II. One wall is entirely covered with autographs and messages from the vets who loved this place (and still return), while another is a memorial to those who didn't make it back.
