Don't just take our word for it...

Food and service of the century!

Visited with my girlfriend recently after local recommendations. It’s a beautiful place with breathtaking views. The staff are very attentive (Sara in particular) and happy in their jobs. The food is the best either of us have EVER had. It was a pleasure to dine here. The dishes are well thought out, spectacular in their presentation and taste like heaven.

The Horn of Plenty is a beautiful venue with gorgeous views across the valley. The house has lots of charm and character and all of the rooms are beautifully decorated with individual character. It doesn’t matter what time of year you visit, it’s a fabulous venue.

We held a celebration lunch here in 2016 for a family birthday and fell in love with the place. The food is incredible, the staff are always friendly and helpful. Nothing is ever too much trouble.

We had our wedding on 4th June this year and the team did not let us down. Leading up to the big day, Julie and the weddings team guided us through the build up and were always on hand to answer any questions and give advice without hesitation. On the day, Shirna and the front of house team delivered a perfect day for us from start to finish.

Another selling point was the fact that we were able to sit down with Chef Ashley and create our own personalised menu. From the reception canapes right the way through to our evening set up, the food was impeccable! All of our guests commented on how amazing it all was.

We cannot recommend the Horn of Plenty enough. It’s become our favourite place!

Excellent all round.  Better service than The Ritz in London!

Close to faultless….

This small hotel is as close to faultless as you can get. The staff do everything possible to make you feel welcome and at home, the best rooms are spacious, individual and comfortable and the food is exceptional.

Amazing hotel.

A wonderful night away. Amazing hotel. Excellent rooms. Fabulous views. Huge lovely bathroom. The biggest most comfortable bed ever.. Dinner was amazing, a drink in the lounge and your order taken. You are then taken to your table. All food freshly cooked. Would suggest the lobster ravioli. Taster soups and great mains of fish. Excellent friendly service with nothing too much hassle for them. Breakfast perfect, all cooked on order and plenty to choose from. We definitely recommend this hotel. Cannot fault it in anyway. Definitely going back and soon.
