Five miles south of Nottingham in the village of Ruddington, this refurbished pub has built up a reputation for its locally-sourced products, whether it’s the pints of quirkily-named Ruddy Good Ale or the regionally-inspired food. Toasted sandwiches, melts and light bites are served throughout the afternoon, with the carte served lunchtimes and evenings. Typical dishes include Lincolnshire Poacher and spinach soufflé; grilled salt hake chowder, mussels, clams, bacon and black cabbage; or slow-cooked pork belly, pickled red cabbage, onion purée, roast sweet potato and plums. Leave room for cinnamon donut .
