Popular with villagers as much as visiting fishermen, cycling clubs and ramblers, this handsome, thatched flint-stone free house is ideally situated for riverside walks. Flagstone floors, a wood-burning stove and solid oak beams create a comfortable setting for a traditional English inn that offers a friendly welcome, a range of well-kept real ales and simple, carefully cooked food. Menu choices include wild boar, pork, red onion and herb meatballs; home-made steak, ale and mushroom pie; chargrilled chicken, chorizo and pea risotto; and fish platter. There's also a deli counter and a selection of baguettes and jackets.
