It’s almost worth getting lost trying to find the 16th-century Barrel lnn, because it offers one of the most stunning pub locations in the land. Perched on a dizzyingly high, narrow lane with stupendous views either side, it’s a magnet for sightseers – in fact doughty, fleeced-clad souls can be spotted all year round, admiring the sights whatever the weather. Inside, tradition reigns - think swirly carpets, studded doors, open fires, old prints on wonky walls and more horse brasses than you can shake a stick at. Four ales are regularly on tap, including brews from William Clarke, Marstons and Hardy & Hanson, while the crowd-pleasing menu is mostly regular pub grub – the homemade steak pie stands out, and the local venison casserole is just the thing after a yomp on the hills. B&B available.
