What was originally-built as a manor house in the late 16th century, is now a village local with a good rotisserie & grill restaurant - and the general focus is geared to food.
At lunchtime you can choose from their good-value set price menu, which offers two choices at each stage or enjoy their selection of snack items.
During the evenings the kitchen expands its repertoire with items such as 'Serrano Ham with Rocket & Mozzarella'; 'Roasted Wood Pigeon Breast with Beetroot Risotto' and 'Seared Scallops with Chorizo and Cucumber & Orange Salad' listed among the starters.
Perhaps 'Rottisserie Belly Pork with Butterbeans, Chili & Spring Onions'; 'Baked Feta Cheese with Butternut Squash, Courgettes, Sultana & Pine Nut Dressing'; 'Lamb Cutlets with Baby Shepherds Pie & Minted Peas'; 'Pork & Leek Sausages with Mash & Gravy' to follow. Or you can choose a steak from their display counter and they will cook it for you meat is charged by weight.
Desserts are popular, with maybe 'Lemon Thyme Brulée with Raspberry Soup'; 'Sticky Carrot Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream' and 'Chocolate & Caramel Tart with Vanilla Ice Cream' there to tempt you.
