From the outside this looks to be a grand, manor-like building, but step through the door to find elegant, rustic-chic decor throughout the rambling dining areas that radiate from the central bar, with warm heritage hues, rugs on terracotta tiles, feature bookcases, 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 ingredients supplied by local farmers, fisherman and artisan producers. This translates to pub favourites such as 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. This pub has superb alfresco areas including an excellent children’s garden and a gravelled front terrace with benches and brollies.
