Free Wi-Fi

A pub since 1680, this handsome stone village inn has that certain something, from its thatched roof and secluded garden to the wisteria-draped pergola tucked in next to an old Fives court. Then inside, a magpie-mix of polished antique furniture distributed judiciously across timeworn boarded floors, shiny flagstones and a vast fireplace pumping out the heat into tastefully decorated rooms. The inner bar is popular with locals, not least because it dispenses pints of Butcombe, Otter and Trelawny, and West Country ciders straight from the cask. Food is a step or three above pub grub too, with starters such as Asian pork fritters with scorched watermelon, crushed cashews and mango dressing. Follow this with Somerset pumpkin, spaetzle and Cornish gouda gratin with local farm salad. The desserts can have unexpected flavours such as cheesecake cream with garden lavender honey, black figs and shortbread streusel.
