Spotlessly kept and traditional in style with a hearty welcome and good food and drinks
Good Pub Guide Recommended
For 48 years, this handsome coaching inn has been run by the friendly and enthusiastic Key family. The traditional main bar is cheerily chatty and cosy, with lots of well polished tables and chairs packed under its beams (some with farming tools, lanterns or horsebrasses and harness attached), as well as leatherette wall benches, and various sets of sporting prints and local pictures - look out for the original deeds to the pub. Tucked away at the front is an intimate little corner with some african masks, while on the other side of the room a passageway leads to a dining area; background music. There may be prints for sale, and perhaps a group of sociable locals. They offer a dozen wines by the glass, along with Brains Rev James and SA, and a guest such as Sharps Doom Bar on handpump. The church is well worth a look. The pub has no parking and nearby street parking can be limited.

Generous helpings of well liked food include sandwiches, leek and welsh cheddar soup, faggots and gravy, steak pie, sausages and mash, pheasant in port, half a duck in Cointreau and puddings such as treacle and walnut tart and sticky toffee pudding.
