Film location scouts looking for a pub on a village green will find a prime candidate here. Although 17th century, it has been a pub only since the 1800s; before that it may have been tea rooms. Rich red ceilings and high-backed, red-upholstered settles help create that quintessential warm pubby feeling. A typical carte proposes goats' cheese mousse and rocket pesto; breaded whitebait; Greek spinach and feta pie; veal schnitzel cooked in lemon garlic butter, fried egg, fries and salad. Sandwiches, salads, jackets, and ploughman’s add to the choices.
