A good gastro pub, with the benefit of real ales, a beer garden and crackling winter fires. The kitchen team has built up a good list of local suppliers.
A summer menu snapshot offered 'Buckland Manor Tomatoes with Charred Sourdough & Cerney Ash Goats Cheese'; 'Crab with Pickled Samphire & Seaweed Toast'; 'Chicken Terrine en Croute with Piccalilli’ and 'Salt Cod Brandade with Harissa Peppers, Parsley & Fennel Salad' among the starters.
'Beer Battered Fillet of Haddock with Home-Cut Chips & Mushy Pies'; 'Beef Burger with Ogleshield Cheese, Paddock Farm Smoked Bacon & Hand-Cut Chips'; 'Steak & Ale Pie with Bobby Beans & Potatoes’ and 'Risotto with English Sweetcorn, Trompette Mushrooms & Crispy Braddock White Egg' listed among the mains.
If you have a sweet tooth, you may be tempted by 'Hot Chocolate Mousse & Salted Caramel with Peanut Butter Ice Cream'; 'White Chocolate Panna Cotta with Raspberries & Honeycomb’ and 'Warm Banana Cake, Banoffee Ice Cream & Rum Syrup'.
