This family-friendly pub dates back at least 160 years, and has a solid reputation for its pub food, using the freshest and finest local produce to create a daily menu that typically includes burgers, steaks and other specials, all washed down with pints of Abbot Ale or Orchard Pig cider. The interior bar and restaurant is contemporary in decor, and outside you can choose between the Mediterranean-style patio or the large garden, which is equipped with swings and climbing frames for younger visitors.
