AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Open all year
Dog friendly
Free Wi-Fi

Built more than 300 years ago, original elements of this country roadside pub are reflected in the quirky stuffed boar’s head mounted above the huge brick-built fireplace. Leather sofas, wingback and parlour chairs mix easily with the rustic look and chunky wooden furniture, whilst the eye is taken by a mural illustrating the well-established wine-making craft in the area. The pub is next door to one of England’s oldest vineyards and there’s a carefully chosen wine list and 20 served by the glass. Fans of the hop are rewarded with firkins from microbreweries such as Old Dairy. From the kitchen comes a pleasing mix of top-notch traditional English and regional French brasserie dishes: seared scallop with sweet potatoes and cumin purée to start, then wild mushroom and tarragon open lasagne; or stone bass fillet with roasted squash, wilted spinach, and crayfish hollandaise, finishing with iced plum pudding parfait with poached pear and chocolate shavings.
