Mansfield House Hotel
The hotel is tucked into the side of a hill and wonderful views can be seen from the restaurant and bar areas. In lovely weather these stunning vistas can be enjoyed with a glass of something from the bar - perhaps the cask-conditioned real ales that are in stock throughout the summer months. When the weather turns cold, the bar area is well-equipped with real log fires to keep guests cosy and snug as they look out over dramatic stormy skies. If you're in the mood for something less formal, the bar and lounge serve casual food throughout the day.
For all of the food they serve, Mansfield House takes great pride in sourcing ingredients, including meat, game, fish and shellfish, from local suppliers. And it seems that the critics are impressed - the hotel won a 'Best Promoter of Local Food and Drink' award in 2001, 'Best Local Produce Champion' in 2004 and the Les Routiers award 'Supporters of Locally Produced Food 2004', as well as receiving several commendations in the same categories. In fact this hotel's list of accolades is testament to its quality. So you see, sumptuous meals made exquisitely from fresh ingredients are a guarantee.
Any visit to this picturesque area should definitely include a trip to Mansfield House - an aesthetically pleasing building with plenty of elegant character and a well-established legacy of very good food. What more could you want?
