Originally built in 975 AD the Porch House is reputed to be England's oldest inn and many of the original features can be seen today in the beautifully presented public areas. The inn was sympathetically refurbished in 2013 and has thirteen individually styled bedrooms. All are equipped to a high standard and WiFi is available throughout. Guests have a choice of cosy authentic bars, with exposed stonewalls and log fires, for casual dining. The award-winning restaurant is very well appointed and the unmissable breakfast features lots of local produce.
We have thirteen rooms available with single, twin and double occupancy.
Our menus are about simple yet robust cooking using the best locally sourced ingredients where possible.
Previously two buildings, there's plenty of choice for where to sit to enjoy your meal. You can dine in the conservatory, bar area, dining room, or garden. Come in, have a wander round, and choose a table that suits.
