This old pub has been given a makeover that, while creating a clean, modern look, still ensures that you are reminded of its past. Clearly popular, it has received regional food accolades for its British and European cooking. Typical is a starter of crispy pig's head with pancetta, black pudding, rhubarb and pistachio, breast and leg of Loomswood duck with carrot, cumin and lentil dhal as a main, and lemon cheesecake with stem-ginger ice cream to finish. Fillet of sea bream is one of several fish options, and for vegetarians there's pea, broad bean and barley risotto. A good choice of wines includes both the Old and New Worlds.
