Caring service, a happy atmosphere, attractive surroundings and exceptional food and drink; lovely bedrooms
Good Pub Guide Recommended
The food here is accomplished and beautifully presented and for many customers it's the main reason for their visit but it would be a shame to miss out on the companionable bar. This is cosy and friendly with Purity Pure UBU and a guest beer on handpump, 22 wines by the glass from an impressive list and some pubby dining choices too; service is exemplary. Softly lit, this largely stripped-stone bar has real saddles as bar stools (some of the country's best racehorse trainers live locally), a carved settle among other carefully chosen seats, dark flagstones and low beams. This opens into an ochre-walled high-raftered room with deeply comfortable sofas by a vast log fire; background music and TV. Two attractively decorated dining rooms, both on two levels, have a pleasing mix of antique tables in varying sizes, and a lively, up-to-date atmosphere. A flagstoned terrace and heated shelter have teak tables and wicker armchairs, and a spreading lawn bounded by floodlit trees has groups of rustic seats, with the Evenlode Valley beyond. This is a lovely place to stay, in individually decorated, well equipped rooms, and breakfasts are delicious.
