Overseeing the crossroads in the centre of the village, this is a true community pub. Owned by Marston's, you can expect big brand ales like Pedigree, Wainwright and Ringwood, as well as guests; bar snacks include sandwiches and jacket potatoes. Among lunch or dinner starters are whitebait, fresh salad and garlic mayonnaise; and breaded brie, cranberry purée and dressed salad. From the grill come Hunter's chicken with bacon, cheese, chips, peas and barbecue sauce; and mixed grill – 4oz rump steak, 6oz gammon steak, two sausages and chicken breast. Other options are beer-battered haddock, chips and mushy peas; liver, onions and mash; and penne arrabbiata.
