Highwaymen, hop-pickers and high clergy have all supped and succoured here in this noble, three-storey Georgian road house. They’d still recognise some of the comfortably traditional interior – timeless panelling, beams, old tables and inglenook; maybe, too, the little wooden barn in a corner of the grassy garden, standing on its painted staddle stones. The reliable country menu is strong on local produce and vegetables from the garden; start with calamari; or home-made Scotch egg; then move onto hunter’s chicken; sausage and mash; sweet pepper and goats’ cheese tart; or a gourmet burger. It may be hard to resist the apple and cherry pie.
