This thriving village inn is set in the tranquil valley of the River Douglas and close to some lovely rambles on Parbold Hill. A pub that caters admirably for all-comers, the emphasis is on high-quality modern cooking using locally sourced seasonal produce. On the menu Eagle & Child smokies on toasted granary bloomer is a typical opening gambit. Progress to 28-day dry-aged 10oz steak with a choice of sauces; or pumpkin and sage ravioli; and steak, ale and mushroom pie with suet pastry, mushy peas and chunky chips. The traditionally styled pub is a popular village local, with an ever-changing array of beers from local microbreweries and farmhouse ciders, while the annual Early May Bank Holiday beer festival attracts up to 2,000 people to a huge marquee.
