A total refurbishment in 2015 brought a bright, contemporary feel to this traditional roadside village inn. Family-run, it retains a pubby atmosphere, while drawing diners from afar. Classics of steak and oxtail pie and burgers can be enjoyed in the bar, while the a la carte menu alongside Basil's Tastes of the Haughmond menu (7 course tasting menu), offers a more fine-dining experience. A simple but delicious haggis Scotch egg with spiced raspberry purée might lead on to pork tenderloin, sticky ribs, hispi cabbage, rhubarb. For dessert, try a comforting aerated white chocolate mousse, blueberries, sweet corn.
