Named after Tobias Norris, who bought it in 1617 for use as a bell foundry, this splendidly restored and renovated medieval hall house dates back to 1280. London Pride and JHB are permanent fixtures in the wood-floored bar, while guest ales are rotated regularly. Having started maybe with a plate of pigs in blankets with rosemary potatoes, your main course, from the rather imaginative menu, could be game casserole with herb dumplings; sag aloo pie; lamb kofta or beetroot falafel; or beer-battered haddock and chips. Stone-baked pizzas are cooked in ovens imported from Italy, their toppings ranging from spicy beef brisket to duck. Puddings include lemon posset and banana sticky toffee pudding. A large enclosed patio is ideal on warmer days. Note that, lunchtimes apart, there's a strict over 18s-only policy.
