It all comes together in this pleasant looking rural inn overlooking the village green: a perfect, prettily planted garden for summer alfresco while within there’s flagstone floors, beams, inglenook, chunky wooden tables, blackboard menus, & ale brewed in the next village on handpump. Add in amazing food, charming service & an excellent wine list (with many modestly priced bottles), & you have a winner. As far as the cooking is concerned, everything is in the execution, the freshness, the flavour, with much emphasis put upon local supplies. When you see goat’s cheese Welsh rarebit that’s exactly what you get, the beef, ale & mustard pie is a classic, or you could have chargrilled 8oz ribeye with mustard & chive butter , or venison stew with horseradish dumplings. The three bedrooms upstairs offer a quality & value for money that knocks the spots off nearby country house hotels.
