This whitewashed 19th-century inn has had a new lease of life under the auspices of regional big-hitter Andreas Antona. Tasteful modern refurbishment makes the most of its beams and exposed brickwork, with warm tones, dark wood and polished tables entirely in tune with the pubby mood. The cooking has its roots in classic European ideas and delivers a touch of modern refinement whilst not turning its nose up at steak and chips with onion rings on the same menu. A big-hitting opener partners crispy duck egg with beer-cured ham, caramelized celeriac, intense cep purée and a rich and glossy chicken jus. Next up, a piggy plateful of pork belly, tender cheek and a croquette of head meat is helped along by crackling, smoked onion, salted apple purée, sage jus and braised barley, while caramelized white chocolate sauce poured into hazelnut praline soufflé alongside blood orange ice cream provides a final flourish.
