Named after the equine figure cut into the chalk at nearby Cherhill, this charming old inn dates from the 18th century. The menu reflects the different eating areas – bar and gardens, or restaurant – or put another way, from beer-battered haddock to, say, Wiltshire pork cutlet with pan-fried polenta cake and roasted fennel.
