A little tucked away, but once on the right road you really shouldn't miss this cute, white-painted, weatherboarded pub. Brakspear's real ales are accompanied by two monthly guests. Typical dishes include beer-battered cod with chunky chips and peas; roast chicken breast with braised greens and mushrooms; pan-fried calves' liver with spinach, bacon and onions; and leek, potato and cheddar pie. Winter menus will feature local game. Sandwiches and light meals, such as mussels steamed in cider with shallots and smoked bacon, are available at lunchtime. The cheeseboard is good enough to win a prize.
