This beautiful inn, previously The White Horse, and clad with wisteria in summer months - dates back to the late 18th century. While still very much a village pub, the food element increasing year by year.
It's now been relaunched, and as the name implies - fish is the name of the game.
Starters such as 'Carlingford Rock Oysters in the Half Shell with Guinness, Shallot Vinegar or Virgin Mary Sauce'; 'Mackerel Escabeche with Beetroot Compote, Horshradish Cream & Beetroot Jelly'; 'Rabbit & Black Pudding Terrine with Poached Quail Eggs & Caramelised Fig Purée' and 'Goats Cheese & Beetroot Tor with Chicory, Baby Beets & Beetroot Jus' set the style.
Perhaps to be followed by 'Poached Salmon & Crab Boudin with Shellfish Linguini & Coral Sauce'; 'Sea Bass with Mange Tout, Purple Peruvians with Clams & Saffron Butter Sauce'; 'Char-Grilled Veal Fillet with Baby Vegetable Risotto & Béarnaise Sauce' and 'Ravioli of Roast Butternut Squash & Pine Nuts on Creamed Spinach' amongst the mains.
Leave room for dessert, be it 'Hot Valrhona Chocolate Fondant' or 'Lemon Posset' - their selection of British Farmhouse Cheese.
There's a bar menu with lighter options.
