Grade II listed former country house which laboured under various guises until being given a new lease of life and shown off in greater glory under ownership of the Brunning & Price chain. Although strictly speaking open-plan, the layout is compartmentalised into several distinct areas each with their own character featuring solid wooden tables and chairs, button-back banquettes, a decorative library, potted plants and chandelier lighting. The walls throughout are covered with a fantastic array of colourful prints and artworks, many with a local element. Well worth taking some time out to give them the attention they deserve. Upstairs is a fine dining room with views over the outside patio and extensive lawned garden with duck pond.
