Half-timbered outside, this Tudor building is a well-preserved reminder of days long gone, with heavy beams, open fires and all the trimmings. It’s been an inn for several centuries; its name possibly derives from regular visits made by King Charles II when visiting Nell Gwynn nearby. Assignations today are firmly rooted in the desire to enjoy the dishes that have gained this Heston Blumenthal-owned pub two AA Rosettes for the distinctly traditional English menu. Diners (restaurant bookings essential, but not for bar meals) may commence with a starter such as Cornish mussels with garlic, apple, cider and parsley; setting the standard for mains like chargrilled Hereford sirloin steak with marrowbone sauce; or roast stone bass fillet with spinach, tomato, shallot and rocket; finishing with apple and plum crumble with vanilla ice cream. The enclosed courtyard is sheltered and there is newly-designed garden and outdoor kitchen open from April each year.
