Eye-catching features at this family-run free house include the unusual white-tiled bar-back, and a striking poster reading ‘Nous sommes les soiffards’, which, tactfully translated, suggests a fondness for drink. Chef James and wife Bianca run things and together they've created an easy-going place, where Adnams and local ales hold court at the bar, and lunch and dinner can be taken in the elegant, chandeliered dining room. James uses a Josper charcoal oven to cook squid, black beans, Nduja and gremolata; and Longhorn cote de boef for two, but you could also try the calf's liver, potato cake, crispy pancetta and onions. Finish with a black fig and almond tart with crème fraiche. Outside is a tree-shaded garden with a covered terrace.
