The Brace of Pheasants

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

Tucked away in a fold of the hills in the heart of Hardy's beloved county, this pretty 16th-century thatched village inn is an ideal place to start or end a walk. With its welcoming open fire, oak beams and fresh flowers, it is the perfect setting to enjoy a selection of real ales and ciders and 18 wines by the glass. Food options might include pan-fried lamb's kidneys with mustard cream sauce or local venison steak with red wine reduction. The inn offers eight en suite bedrooms, four above the pub and four in the old skittle alley.
