Sit with a pint of Butcombe in the pretty garden, after a tasty home-cooked meal in this warm, beamy pub with welcoming staff

Beetling down the A303 to Cornwall, in need of a bite? This ridiculously pretty thatched inn, a flower-edged path leading to its cottage door, beats the faceless services at Podimore any day! No wonder it hums on a Sunday – with enthusiastic landlords, chef Adam and restaurant manager Cinzia, the Kingsdon Inn is just the place for a pint of Butcombe and a wonderful roast. There's a charming single bar with bending beams, an inglenook with a winter fire, and farmhouse chairs at pine tables. At lunch you might find Cornish crab or stuffed piquillo peppers. At dinner, local pork tenderloin and crispy belly with saffron potato fondant; veal involtini with Dorset smoked pancetta; and more elaborate, equally delicious specials on the chalk board.
