Reputed to be one of Shakespeare’s drinking haunts, The Broom is a timber-framed, 16th-century pub in a pretty village. This venerable inn has great charm and character, with log fires in winter and three sunny beer gardens for alfresco drinking in the summer. Chef patron Fritz Ronnenburg showcases the best local produce and offers locally-brewed ales including Purity Mad Goose. Everything is made on the premises and a typical meal might include citrus-marinated cod on butter bean and chorizo cassoulet, followed by Gressingham duck three ways – breast, croquette and parfait, dauphinoise potatoes and blackberry jus.
