Old inn, old beams, great beer

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

This spruced-up old coaching inn, first licensed in 1636, stands opposite the church with views of the distant Welsh hills. Chock full of old timbers, jugs, pots, pictures, prints and ornaments, the rambling bars provide an atmospheric setting in which to sample some cracking beers and decent pub food. Typically, tuck into lunchtime filled baguettes (tuna mayo, cheese or prawn for example), lamb cutlets, salmon teriyaki, speciality salads, and a good selection of pasta dishes. There are spacious gardens to enjoy in summer.
