A smartly refurbished village pub with its own micro-brewery and a huge emphasis on cooking great food from a network of local suppliers


A 1700s coaching inn rescued from many years of neglect by the present owners and now run by cheerful James, a local lad and committed foodie. Downstairs find stripped wooden floors or original flagstones, roaring fires all year round and a glass wall to the brewery area. Lots of comfy wingback chairs encourage loafing while you decide what to eat: farm to fork local wherever possible, homemade puddings, family Sunday lunch. The a la carte menu is growing but they haven't forgotten pub classics entirely. Try a pint of 'Goldie' from their own Four Mice brewery, or choose from a very reasonable wine list by the glass. A big seating area out the back means on sunny evenings you can spill out here with something delicious and non-alcoholic if you prefer, from Urban Cordials. Locals and visitors alike enjoy this place.
