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.
