Traditional food and a beer festival

At a glance

Bar menu
Beer festival
Microbrewed ales
Open all year
Kids play area

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, including locally-made beer and exclusive to the pub, as well as eight real ciders too. Tempting food appears on the menu – perhaps red pepper and tomato soup, followed by cashew nut terrine; belly pork stuffed with apples and apricots; or soft shell crab with fennel slaw. 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 is a beer festival in mid April and on the second Thursday of every month, a Thai curry night.
