This welcoming Hook Norton house continues to lure real ale drinkers with pints of perfectly kept Hooky, but it also draws the food crowd. The menu offers an all-day bar menu, including a charcuterie board, sandwiches and burgers, alongside the main à la carte. Try the twice baked Manchego soufflé; or beef fillet carpaccio to start; then free-range chicken supreme; smoked haddock kedgeree; or 8oz aged rib-eye steak. If you still have room, treacle tart and Chantilly cream is one choice for those with a sweet tooth. Look out for the summer beer festival.
