Our new Snug Bar is Open

The bank manager, as is their wont, asked why we wanted to build the Snug Bar. Now bank managers are not our favourite species – Mother simply  thinks they are ‘numpties’ who know nothing about privately owned and run hotels and I find them over so concerned with box ticking and small details that they completely miss the big picture. Indeed they all now answer to some greater being on a…

Autumn Newsletter

I am late as usual in sending out my events for autumn and early winter, but we have had, and are still having, such a hectically busy summer that I have been spending the last six months running to keep up! Lovely but exhausting. Thank goodness I have had son Giles to keep me going. He has done wonders with internet marketing and so the bedrooms have been full all year, which is terrific.

How to get an early check-in

Recently we had a somewhat disgruntled review on the dreaded TripAdvisor which stated that we were ‘less than enthusiastic’ when someone tried to check-in at 12.20pm on a Sunday. (As is the way with these things the author stated 1.20pm in his review but we remember the customer well!).

Our Wine Cellar

Denis Hine

Corse Lawn’s Winelist is very much a work of love. Some of our favourite times have been lunches and dinners sat in the company of Bill Baker, Mark Walford, Robin and Jason Yapp, Alan Goadby and Chris Piper. Needless to say numerous wines were tasted and discussed and we unashamedly only stock wines that we like.

Thus the list is best described as long and eclectic! However, it has also been a…
