World War II pilots once relaxed at this 14th-century coaching inn – stamps on the restaurant ceiling mark downed German planes. These days, guest ales from microbreweries such as Old Dairy are supported by a vast wine list offering 23 by the glass. A smoker (imported from Texas) and Big Green Egg BBQ are the workhorses of the kitchen and the bar menu offers the likes of Korean fried chicken wings and smoked pork ribs. From the main menu, a starter of chicken liver parfait, spiced pear pickle and saffron fruit bread, might precede bream fillet, borlotti bean paprika cream, black pudding and cavolo nero. Finish with raspberry sherry trifle and lemongrass custard.
