Refurbished in 2016, this 15th-century coaching inn retains considerable character, enhanced by carefully chosen period furnishings. Although real ale devotees make a beeline for bar pumps dispensing the likes of Hambleton Stallion, the thoroughly modern cooking of talented chef-proprietors Jonathan Hall and Marcus Bennett continues to draw the crowds in the two dining areas. At dinner, expect starters like creamed moules marinière, cider, Bramley apples, pancetta and thyme, and mains such as pan-fried hake, black squid, crab, giant couscous, sweet potato, yogurt and bouillabaisse. Finish with dark chocolate and caramel bar, peanut butter ice cream, macerated cinnamon cherries and cherry foam. There’s a good vegetarian choice too.
