With X-shaped tie-bar ends securing its aged hamstone walls, a thatched roof, blackened oak beams, flagstones, log fires, old church pews and settles, this 17th-century former farmhouse certainly looks like a textbook example of an English country pub. First licensed in the 1850s, the bar dispenses real ales from Hall & Woodhouse in Blandford, Dorset. Menus change every six weeks or so, with daily specials on offer, typically expect coarse pork terrine with spiced chutney to start; followed by aubergine curry with pilau rice and crispy poppadum.
