Vintage-chic dining-pub recommended for its outdoor areas

Microbrewed ales
Open all year

From the outside this looks to be a grand, manor-like building, but step through the door and find elegant, rustic-chic decor throughout the rambling dining areas, with an eclectic mix of old dining tables, and squashy sofas and leather chairs fronting blazing winter log fires. The atmosphere is informal, the beer on tap is Woodforde’s Wherry, and the modern British food is prepared from top-notch local ingredients. Look out for pan-fried sea bass fillet with crushed new potatoes, greens and brown shrimp butter; wild mushroom risotto; and beer-battered haddock with garden peas and hand-cut chips. There are superb alfresco areas including an excellent children’s garden and a terrace with benches and brollies.
