A Pub with Rooms, Truly Scrumptious Food and Make a Weekend of it

If you joined us earlier in the week you will remember our blog on the close relationship between the vine and the man at Cottonworth.

Make a weekend of it

And if, like us, you'd like to make a weekend of your wine tour, no not touring and tasting all weekend (doesn't bear thinking about really) - why not make it a break away!  

Michelin Pub of the Year 2014

We recommend this lovely pub with rooms in Stockbridge which is not far from Hugh Liddell's Cottonworth.  

A Michelin pub of the year in 2014 and we know why!
The rooms aren't huge but enough space for a short break, cosy and welcoming.
A room at the front can be a little noisy if you like to sleep with a window open.  Stockbridge High Street is actually a lot busier than we thought.  We do like to sleep with the window open but to be honest the road noise didn't spoil our stay.
And the bathroom has lovely fluffy towels and my favourite ever bath essentials from Molton Brown.
Their fresh bread delivered every day is to die for, simply delicious as is their breakfast.

Be sure to book ahead ....

When we made our B&B booking, if we wanted to eat in the restaurant on the Friday and Saturday, we were advised to book as it gets very busy.

They were absolutely right.  It does get busy and I'll tell you why now.... the food is truly scrumptious.  Sorry I guess that's a bit of a girly expression but it really is truly scrumptious!  Quality service too with friendly and attentive staff.

And weather permitting there is also the option for eating alfresco.
Or .....
take a short walk down the path and
sit in the pretty garden with a glass of wine overlooking the River Test.
and ............. relax

Of course, Malcolm would love to fish here and maybe, just maybe he could get lucky another day. 

Apparently The Greyhound can put together a fly fishing vacation..... yes, yes we will see.
