AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Open all year
Kids play area
Dog friendly

All pantiles, pale bricks and creeper, this long-established inn stands at the village centre just a short hop from the magnificent Minster at nearby Southwell amidst the rich cornfields of the Trent Valley. Within, it's a contemporary and comfortable pub, with exposed old beams and brickwork retained from the original 18th-century cottages, scattered with reclaimed panelling and furniture. It's a relaxing locale in which to chill out with a glass of wine or a pint of Doom Bar. What's more it's both child and dog-friendly, with a grassy, tree-shaded garden an additional bonus for summer days. Good pub tucker features on the menus: leek and potato soup; goats’ cheese fondue, figs, pomegranate seeds, garlic croûtons; braised blade of beef, parmesan mash, peas, crumbled bacon and red wine jus; celeriac and spinach risotto, soft hen’s egg and watercress; and beer-battered haddock, chunky chips, pea purée and tartare sauce.
