Dog friendly

New owner John Garside has injected new life into this appealing village pub which once appeared in TV's Darling Buds of May. Tall stools line the corner bar in the Snug, which stocks a real ale named after the pub, as well as Black Sheep, Moorhouse’s and Timothy Taylor Landlord. Local ingredients from farms and producers close to the village drive the dishes emerging from the newly refurbished kitchen. Smoked haddock, wholegrain mustard and dill fishcake with wilted spinach might precede slow-braised lamb shoulder shepherd’s pie topped with cheesy mashed potato and served with sautéed minted greens. A range of sandwiches and light bites are served from noon-3pm.
