With roots as a pilgrims' inn in the 16th century, the timber-framed White Horse is the only pub in the village in which The Rev W. Awdry, Thomas the Tank Engine’s creator, lived as a boy. The building is home to three large inglenooks, the one in the public bar having an iron fireback decorated with the crest of Charles I and hooks on which to hang bacon sides for smoking. Typical dishes are mushroom mille feuille with mixed bean and chickpea cassoulet and pea purée; roast chicken breast with sweet chilli and honey sauce; and smoked trout with new potatoes and salad.
