Over the centuries, this old coaching inn has welcomed many a traveller, Oliver Cromwell and Winston Churchill among them. Judge Jeffreys presided over some of his famous assize courts here, often sending miscreants to the gallows overlooking the adjacent River Misbourne. Much of the pub’s 14th-century character survives, particularly the massive beams, huge brick chimneys, and imposing panelled and flagstoned bar. Here you can join the villagers supping pints of Sharp's Doom Bar, watch the big game, and order a bar snack at half time. The restaurant specialises in English and continental dishes so perhaps start with the hot and cold Var salmon with asparagus and cream cheese dressing. Next may come a pub favourite such as a home-made burger with back bacon, cheese, fries and relish; or a simple grilled rump steak cooked to your liking. A warm chocolate brownie with orange ice cream makes a satisfying finish.
