The four key things that sum up this member of the Greene King portfolio – low beams, antique furniture, cosy fires and teamwork. Then, of course, there’s the food. You can eat in one of two traditional bars with open fires, in the pretty beamed dining room, or in the large, well-kept gardens and patio area. Everything that can be is home made and the brasserie-style cooking is typified by starters of fried brie on a warm port sauce; and smoked salmon and prawn parcel; then fillet of sea bass with chilli, ginger, soya and garlic; duo of lamb with kale, pea purée, carrots and jus; or wild mushroom and parmesan risotto. Look out for regular music evenings (mainly tribute acts).
