Village pub surrounded by beautiful countryside

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

An attractive, mellow sandstone building dating from the 17th century, whose interior frequently prompts customers to liken it to stepping back in time. Its reputation for good food stems from dishes such as deep-fried fillet of cod; home-made cottage pie; grilled beef and gammon steaks; chilli con carne; macaroni cheese, and regularly changing specials. Stilton comes as a cheese option for a ploughman's, and for a steak sauce topping. In addition to the food, also attracting custom is the wide selection of wines by the glass or mini-bottle, and locally brewed real ales from Belvoir, The Grainstore, Newby Wyke and others. Furthermore, there's a choice of 25-plus malt whiskies.
