This friendly 17th-century hilltop country pub and restaurant has wonderful views of Brill Windmill and neighbouring counties. Well worth trying is the pub’s own, appropriately named, ‘A Very Pleasant Pheasant Ale’. Enticing starter choices might be white bean and onion soup; Cullen skink; or mussels of the week. Then consider braised shoulder steak pie; pan-fried scallops, thermidor sauce and French fries; or honey roast ham, free-range eggs and hand-cut chips. Head for the garden when the weather’s good in the summer and book for a Thursday curry evening. There are also four stylish en suite bedrooms.
