This popular, character gastro pub has a casual atmosphere and friendly service; modern British cuisine is given an inventive twist and dishes are presented with flair and have exciting flavours. You might start with a colourful dish of pan-fried mackerel, beetroot, fennel and giant couscous, promising an array of flavours and textures. Next up is pan-fried chicken, which arrives with creamed mash, ruby chard, butternut squash purée and red wine jus. Creativity is maintained with a lemon posset accompanied by lavender cream and raspberries. Posh pub classics are also available if you'd rather stay within your comfort zone.
