‘People think I’m going to read them a story,’ says the barmaid, as she opens the Rupert Bear annual to reveal the wine list. It’s just one of the touches that bring character to this quirky spot. The sibling owners grew up in the area, & the fun they’ve had creating their own pub shows. Two Guinness factory pressure gauges flank the entrance, & there’s Greene King & Truman ale, & Addlestones cider on tap. A pool table, a big screen for football & live band nights also attract punters. Food is carefully sourced, with chutneys, jams & ice creams made in house. Sit in the dining room or on the leafy terrace & tuck into grilled asparagus with poached egg & Parmesan, rump of lamb with mash & buttered sprouting broccoli, & lemon tart with crème fraîche.
