This attractive 18th-century, stone-built pub stands in gardens overlooking the stunning church. It's a real local, the Tap Bar regularly used by the village darts team, their throwing arms lubricated by pints of Fool’s Nook ale. The menus in both the bar and charming conservatory restaurant rely extensively on locally sourced ingredients. In the spring, restaurant offerings are oriental duck salad with coriander dressing, followed by pie of the day with chips and peas. Hopefully there'll still be room for caramelised lemon tart.
