Fodor's Review

Dating back to the 17th century, this hotel and restaurant once patronized by Charles Dickens is full of historic character, with open fireplaces, wood paneling, and exposed beams. The bedrooms, some with original fireplaces, offer a combination of traditional charm and modern, uncluttered style. The cozy bistro downstairs serves a fine, changing menu featuring locally caught fish and seasonal game.
