Close to the stunning River Chet, this former 18th-century coaching inn reopened in 2012 after a comprehensive refurbishment that retained its traditional charm while bringing it into the 21st century. While much is made of local sourcing of ingredients, the menu mixes modern British dishes with Mediterranean classics, offering chargrilled steaks alongside slow-roasted tomato ragout, gnocchi, olives, crispy chickpeas and pesto-dressed leaves. Equally impressive dishes range from a starter of pressed lamb shoulder, with peas, mint, broad bean and radishes to a main course of slow-braised Heckingham beef cheek, fondant potato, roasted shallot and red wine jus. To finish, try lemon curd tart, basil meringues and raspberry gel.
