On the Powys-Shropshire border, this 17th-century inn retains much of its original character, with exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace. Its reputation for good quality food owes much to local farmers who supply excellent meats, including lamb and mutton from rare-breed Jacob sheep. Enjoy local Shropshire Lad and guest real ales in the bar, while choosing from an extensive menu that lists grilled lamb chop and shepherd's pie; butternut squash stuffed with cannellini beans, mozarella, peppers and tomato; and Stonehouse ale and beef pie. Among the desserts are fresh fruit Pavlova and ginger and lime cheesecake. The beer garden has plenty of seating and a children’s play area.
