Scottish touches – paintings by artist Mavis Makie, quotes by Robert Burns, the presence of haggis, skirlie and cranachan on the menus, and a wide choice of single malts – reflect the origin of this inn’s landlord and landlady. A 200-year-old, family-run village free house where Victorian fireplaces sit comfortably alongside modern wooden furniture and subtly coloured fabrics, it offers an extensive choice of dishes ranging from Puy lentil and mixed vegetable burger in a brioche bun with tomato chutney, to steak and kidney baked suet pudding with red wine gravy, vegetables and chips. Look out for the £7 pub lunch specials.
