Dating from the 16th century, the Running Horses is a proper heart-warming village local, with a crackling fire in winter and a kitchen that knows what is required and delivers the goods without pretension. Accordingly, what arrives on the table is rustic, crowd-pleasing fare, ranging from starters of devilled crab on toast with lemon and rocket, through to pub-grub classics such as Brakspear’s ale-battered haddock with tartare sauce, braised peas and fries, or pan-fried calves’ liver with creamy mash, smoked bacon, sherry shallots and red wine jus. Desserts follow the comfort route with the likes of treacle tart with clotted cream, or get more adventurous with tiramisù roulade.
