There can be few pubs in the country that have acquired their name by virtue of a ‘For Sale’ sign. One was planted outside the pub for so long during a change of ownership that the locals dispensed with the old name in favour of the name of the estate agent on the board. Since taking over Robert and Mandy Knowles have certainly made their mark at this long, low, stone-built partly thatched building dating from 1721. Inside, the pub has plenty of offer: stone fireplaces with log fires, quarry-tiled floors, scrubbed wood tables and five intimate dining rooms. In the timeless and beamed snug bar, real ales such as Grainstore Ten Fifty lift the heart, boding well for excellent value dishes like a trio of melon in elderflower jelly, passionfruit and mango sorbet, and strawberry soup; Gressingham duck breast with bubble-and-squeak mash and peppercorn sauce; or pan-fried fillet of sea bass with squash risotto, tiger prawns and roast chorizo. Try the spicy pear, boozy village blackberries and orange sorbet for afters.
