What was developed from a 17th century coaching inn, has developed with the addition of adjoining terraced houses into a deservedly-popular foodie pub with comfortable bedrooms. So expect real ales, served in a comfortable bar, and a garden where pétanque is a popular pastime.
On the food front, you can enjoy freshly-cut Sandwiches and light meals, such Ploughman’s and homemade Pies in the bar or more elaborate seasonal dishes – cooked in a modern vein – in the brasserie-style restaurant.
An early summer menu listed ‘Breaded Whitebait’; ‘Chicken Liver Paté; ‘Garlic Mushrooms’ and ‘Classic Prawn Cocktail’ among the starters.
Mains such as ‘Home-made Beef Lasagne’; ‘Chicken Tikka Masala’; ‘Gammon, Egg & Chips’; ‘Ricotta Cheese & Spinach Cannelloni’ – plus a selection of Burgers & Steaks from The Grill.
A Sunday Lunch Carvery is particularly popular. No shorts or baseball caps in dining room.
