In addition to the grown-ups, children and dogs are very welcome at this Cotswold dining pub where good ales, ciders and tempting menus are on offer. Two acres of grounds allow plenty of space for lawns, fruit trees and vegetable plots which supply fresh produce for the kitchen. Light pastel shades and beams scrubbed down to their natural hue characterise the appealing interior, where typical dishes include fillet of pork with chestnut mushrooms, roast cauliflower and black pudding; tart Tatin of white onion, roast endive, Stilton, pear and walnut salad; rump or ribeye steak with tomato and triple-cooked chips; and bream, roasted fennel and samphire.
