Find this cosy foodie inn in a picturesque village just south of Bath. You can just enjoy a pint of real ale or some freshly-cut sandwiches, but food is taken seriously and their à la carte menu is sure to tempt you although you'll have to book at the weekend.
Starters such as 'Smoked Haddock & Gruyere Cheese Fishcake with Tartare Sauce'; 'Butternut Squash, Rosemary & Roast Garlic Ravioli'; 'Chicken Liver & Wild Mushroom Paté with Mixed Salad & Toast'; 'Moules Mariniere' or perhaps 'Whole Camembert with Garlic, Herbs & Honey' (to share) set the style.
With maybe 'Trio of Bath Sausages, Mash & Red Wine Gravy'; 'Beer-Battered Fish with Chips'; 'Red Snapper with Chorizo Mash & Langoustine Sauce' and 'Sirloin Steak with Chips, Grilled Tomato, Garlic Mushrooms and Stilton or Peppercorn Sauce' listed among the mains.
You can just have a pud if you wish, with perhaps 'Chocolate Torte with Double Cream'; 'Sticky Toffee Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream' and 'Profiteroles with Chantilly & Chocolate Sauce' among their offerings. While those with a more savoury tooth, will be tempted by their selection of local farmhouse cheeses.
