With links to the old East India Company College, now Haileybury College, the pub backs on to woodland, making it an ideal halfway house for walkers. Thoughtful renovation is particularly evident inside, where exposed brickwork, large rugs and gentlemen’s-club-style wingback chairs are harmoniously juxtaposed. An easy-to-digest menu suggests pork dumplings with rocket salad as a starter; pork belly with Savoy cabbage, braised beetroot and mash; and sausages and mash as mains; then chocolate brownie, Italian meringue and chocolate ice cream for dessert. All the cheeses are from The Cheese Plate in Buntingford and Sunday roasts are all served with large Yorkshire puddings.
