This 17th-century village pub has a traditional look with real hops, a large inglenook fireplace and family grandfather clock. In addition to a good range of local ales there’s real ciders too, including Orchard Pig and Thatchers Gold. Tempting food appears on the menu – perhaps devilled lamb’s kidneys on ciabatta croûton; or deep-fried brie with crème de cassis cranberry chutney to start, followed by chargrilled tuna, king prawn and sweet pepper skewers; ballotine of rabbit stuffed with black pudding; or goats’ cheese and caramelised onion tart. The garden terrace incorporates an all-weather patio and children's area next to a function room, skittle alley and wood-fired pizza oven. There are beer festivals on the weekend nearest to St George’s Day (23rd April) and in mid-October; steak nights on Wednesdays and a five-curry buffet the last Thursday of each month.
