AA Pick of the Pubs

Open all year
Kids play area

A little bit tucked away on the edge of the village, this convivial pub is run by Peter and Val Mustoe who, for many years, lived in South Africa. Once inside you’ll undoubtedly be struck by the polished floorboards, stone walls, log fire, leather sofas, smart dining furniture, in fact, by the whole set-up. Food and drink are served in all areas, including in the beautiful garden which has a children's play area. Lunch could be ostrich burger with hand-cut chips; or cottage pie and side salad, while the dinner menu offers tapas to share; pork tenderloin with apple and cider sauce; fresh tagliatelle with seafood or bolognese; or vegetarian choices of risotto and vegetable curry. As well a traditional pub menu, a number of South African dishes are served, including bobotie and bunny chow. Gluten free dishes are available too. On Sundays expect roasts, fish and chips, a curry and chargrills. Peter and Val say they are child, dog and horse friendly.
