Original beams, slate floors, inglenook fireplaces, original artwork and low ceilings combine to create a chic and modern interior in this family-run, 17th-century inn. The flower-rich garden and courtyard offer alfresco dining in the warmer months. Grab a pint of Adnams, or choose from the excellent wine list, and settle down in comfort to appreciate the tempting, seasonally inspired dishes – maybe Woburn Estate venison steak with celeriac purée, mash and blackberry jus; pavé of sea-reared trout
on butter bean and chorizo cassoulet; or vegetable suet pudding.
