This pretty village has a church, well known for its medieval murals and this excellent foodie pub with old beams, flagstone floor and open winter fires.
On the food front, you can eat in the bar or in their rustic dining room, which is candlelit during the evening.
The kitchen has built up a good network of local suppliers, and also sources freshly-caught fish from Cornwall.
