Lovely room a fantastic breakfast and the staff were all so helpful and friendly could not fault them but am afraid to say the restaurant was not what it used to be. The food ok but average and overpriced for what it was.

We ate in the pub on Monday. We were lucky and able to get a table straight away. Our dog was in tow, so she obediently sat under the table. Food was good; a pumpkin risotto and a chicken &mushroom pie. Both tasty and filling,...More

The Orange Tree has the potential to be a wonderful hotel and restaurant but is let down by its inexperienced and untrained staff. We booked a 2 night stay and arrived at the hotel at 8pm on Saturday, we were led to a nice room...More

Sorry no idea, but given the very high standards of service, I can't believe it would be a problem. Give them a call before your visit, I'm sure they will be happy to oblige.
