Surrounded by mature trees and well-tended gardens, this 18th-century, family-run pub and restaurant has a refreshing, modern interior and it's just four miles from Alton Towers. Ringwood Fortyniner and the more local Alton Abbey are among the beers on hand pump in the bar. With a good reputation for food, its main menu is supplemented by daily chef's specials on the fresh fish and meat boards. Expect chicken liver, bacon and rosemary pâté; or herb-breaded brie to start, followed by Moroccan harissa chicken; or perhaps a fillet or rib-eye steak served with tomato, mushrooms and crispy deep-fried onions. At lunchtimes there are light bite options such as scampi and chips; and pork sausage, egg and chips.
