This historic inn, dating from the 14th century, was built as a house for the craftsmen working on the nearby village church.
It's now the village local, but also offering good food and comfortable accommodation. There are three areas in which to enjoy their food, ranging from the main bar to a more elegant dining room, and food is mainly locally-sourced either from farms or local fishermen.
This ranges from Platters such as 'Charcuterie' and an extensive Antipasti selection, through main courses such as 'Braised Oxtail, White Bean Purée, Dauphinoise Potatoes & Parsnip Crisps'; 'King Prawn Thai Red Curry with Lime & Coconut Rice' and 'Cumberland Sausages with Celeriac Mash, Confit Shallots & Red Wine Jus'. Seasonal game figures prominently in darker months.
If you have a sweet tooth, you might be tempted by the likes of 'Chocolate Raspberry Tart & Pavlova Ice Cream'; 'Red & Black Cherry Trifle, Amaretti Biscuit' and 'Espresso Coffee Crème Brulée with Cinnamon Donuts'.
There's a children's menu (for under 12's), so families can eat together without breaking the bank.
