Suntrap courtyard in summer, log fires in winter, and warm stylish décor. Field mushroom risotto, bitter lemon posset - all is delicious!

The good people of Marton have got back their lovely local. A gleaming coat of whitewash invites you in and the light lofty bar with its stunning cruck-barn ceiling tells of 16th-century origins. There's a very pleasing mix of oak settles and smart velvet chairs, open fires, polished wood floors and ruby-red walls. Tuck into twice-baked blue cheese soufflé with cauliflower purée or more substantially, confit shoulder of lamb. Veggies are well-served: try autumn field mushroom risotto or roast cherry vine tomato and sweet basil penne. Puds are a treat – bitter lemon posset with chantilly cream; apple and berry crumble with proper custard. In summer, a stylish courtyard at the back is a suntrap – a fab spot for a glass of something chilled.
