AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Open all year

Down a narrow, winding lane, lined with beech and oak trees, this mid 17th-century pub was one of notorious highwayman Dick Turpin's hideouts. Since he was involved with the landlord's daughters that makes sense. Many of its finest features are unchanged, including the low beams, tiled floors, open fires and the absence of a bar – beer is drawn directly from casks in the cellar. Local produce and organic fare are the kitchen's mainstays, with set lunches typified by seared Cornish sardines, tomato and anchovy salsa, samphire and green herb oil; slow-roast local Saddleback pork belly, creamed mash potato, pickled red cabbage, broccoli and jus; and lemon tart, raspberry coulis and cream. From the carte come stone bass, seared diver scallops, roast sweet potato, kale, lemon and parsley butter and crispy capers; and chicken breast baked in pancetta, lemon and chestnut stuffing with rösti potato, young carrots and winter greens.
