Simon and Kate Daws' free house ticks all the boxes with its quarry tile floors, roaring log fires, farmhouse furnishings and real ales such as Wye Valley. Local ciders and perries are on offer at the bar. The baronial dining room takes its inspiration from the local manor, and game and rare-breed pork make an appearance on a menu that includes crispy pressed pork belly, tiger prawns and ginger confit; roast duck breast with game faggot, infused beetroot, pumpkin purée and star anise sauce. The lovely gardens are just the place for enjoying a drink or lunch, or a perhaps a barbecue that is available for private groups.
