Originally a farrier’s, the buildings here are around 250 years old; the pub has been here for at least a century, while the main kitchen, a farm shop and a chocolate workshop now occupy the smithy and stables in the courtyard. Inside, numerous original features and old beams are supplemented by antique furniture, and sea-grass matting completes the warm and welcoming atmosphere. A typical menu presents mains such as beef, mushroom and red wine casserole; cod with garlic roast vegetables; and braised lamb shank in rosemary and garlic sauce. Try bread and butter pudding or treacle oat tart for dessert.
