What was once a coaching inn is now a popular foodie pub, village local and comfortable place to stay, offering an English/French fusion style menu.
The kitchen offers English/French fusion dishes with the likes of 'Shredded Ham Hock with a Poached Egg (Scotch Egg-style) & Cabbage Tossed in Spiced Balsamic Jus'; 'Selection of Home-Smoked Fish with Lemon Coriander Butter & Tomato Chutney'; 'Pan-Fried Tiger Prawns & White Fish Royale on Moules Marinière Sauce' and 'Goats Cheese & Artichoke Crumble, Chicory Leaf & Confit Root Vegetables' on their seasonally-changing starters.
Maybe 'Chicken Ballotine Stuffed with Chorizo & Olives with a Marjoram & Goats Cheese Sauce'; 'Lamb Shank Braised in Local Ale with Spinach & Wild Rocket'; 'Haddock Fillet Wrapped in Serrano Ham with Crayfish Tails & Red Curry Cream' listed amongst the mains.
Those with a sweet tooth might be tempted by 'Bourbon Vanilla Crème Brulée'; 'Pear & Forest Fruit Bread & Butter Pudding' or 'Hot Sticky Toffee Pudding'.
