This village local is also a good gastro pub, offering a monthly-changing menu.
A summer snapshot brought 'Char-grilled Sardines, Roasted Tomato & Red Pepper Salsa, Aioli & Herb Salad'; 'Pan-fried Pigeon Breast, Toasted Red Onion & Tomato Bread with a Cherry Pesto'; 'Smoked Ham Hock Terrine, Date Purée, Dandelion Salad & Toasted Brioche' and 'Crayfish & Samphire Risotto with Baked Lemon & Focaccia' among the starters.
To be followed by 'Pan-fried Sea Bass with Aubergine & Smoked Mackerel Potato Cake on a Lime, Coriander, Lemongrass & Shrimp Risotto'; 'Oven-Roasted Poussin, Braised Red Cabbage, Baby Roasted Potatoes & Curly Kale'; 'Ribeye Steak, Mixed Fine Beans, Roasted Field Mushroom, Hand-Cut Chips with Béarnaise Sauce'.
Desserts follow the seasons, along with the rest of the menu, so summer fruits are given their due with perhaps 'Raspberry Bread & Butter Pudding'; 'Peach Fangipane Tart with White Chocolate Ice Cream & Fresh Cherry Syrup' and 'Lavender Posset with home-made Shortbread' on offer.
