This quietly brilliant, hospitable village pub garners plaudits across the board, from its warm ambience to its rustic British menu. First-rate breads from a nearby bakery & crates of seasonal vegetables adorn the bar, while the astute sourcing policy wins praise. Lunch might bring cream of summer cauliflower soup with poached organic egg & wild marjoram oil followed by a perfect burger of locally reared beef served with smoked bacon, Suffolk Gold cheese & proper chips cooked in beef dripping – wholesome stuff dished up with generosity. Dinner factors in seasonal highlights such as roasted local wood pigeon with spring greens & blueberries ahead of pollock with wild sorrel sauce, while locally made ice creams & delicious fruit crumbles with properly made egg custard are among desserts. Real ales from nearby Buntingford brewery & an intelligently selective, affordable wine list draw an appreciative crowd.
