10 High Street, HAMPTON-IN-ARDEN, B92 0AA
Once a farmhouse, this 17th-century, timber-framed pub first acquired a drinks licence in the early 1800s. Its bright, modern interior is today furnished with wicker chairs and decorated with fresh flowers. Landlord Chris Roach and his partner FanFan draw on their considerable experience of working in or visiting restaurants, bistros and gastro-pubs throughout England and France to present an ever-appealing combination of classic English pub grub and simple French bistro-style food. Black pudding St Malo would make a good starter, as would whitebait and Dijon mustard mayonnaise; a main of moules marinière à la crème and frites could continue the Gallic approach, or go Jamaican with curried goat and rice. An alternative to a traditional roast on Sunday could be two-cheese penne pasta, or fillet of cod. There are also specials, jacket potatoes and toasted sandwiches. Real ales include Pure UBU (named after the brewery's dog), Bank's Sunbeam and Castle Rock Harvest Pale.
