This pub in a little village south of Stevenage goes from strength to strength thanks to brothers James and Tom Bainbridge and a very experienced and welcoming team. The self-taught and award-winning head chef is passionate about sourcing the best ingredients for his exciting modern British dishes. You could opt for a pub classic such as game cottage pie, or look to the à la carte choices – pheasant breast, wild mushrooms and pickled mustard seeds; braised rabbit, carrot cake and jus; or goats’ cheese fondant, kale, braised baby onions, peas and lettuce. A set menu is available at both lunch and dinner, and there is an extensive wine list.
