Tucked away deep in the rich farmlands of the Trent Valley, this beck-side village inn is one of a small chain of quality dining pubs owned by the Hope family. An imposing rose arbour, created by a former vicar of the village church across the water, is a feature of the much extended 16th-century cottages at the core of the pub. Fans of the hop can expect a glass of Black Sheep alongside further guest ales; wine-lovers have a choice of 24 by the glass. Beams, oak floorboards and rustic farmhouse-style furnishings characterise the traditional-style interior; outside is a sheltered terrace and lawned garden. The modern, mostly pan-European main menu changes regularly, offering a stimulating choice to satisfy most palates. Starters might be local pigeon breast with spiced roasted pumpkin, celeriac remoulade and popped wild rice; leading to confit pork belly with a black pudding bonbon, caramelised apple purée and parmentier potatoes; or pan-seared sea bass. A daily-changing set menu is now available and gourmet evenings add further spice to the mix.
