Homely village local with changing beers, fair-priced food and neat colourful garden
Good Pub Guide Recommended
A few picnic-sets on the grass in front of this community-owned village pub face lime trees on the peaceful village green opposite - while the pergola-covered back terrace and good-sized sheltered garden with its colourful herbaceous border, have seats and picnic-sets (some shade is provided by a tall ash tree). The main room on the left, with grey wainscot, has sturdy, well varnished furniture including padded country kitchen chairs and cast-iron-framed tables on patterned carpet, a generous window seat, a log fire in a brick fireplace and fox hunting prints. The somewhat smaller room on the right has steeplechase prints, varnished plank panelling and brocaded bar stools on flagstones around the servery; darts and dominoes. Fullers London Pride and Youngs Bitter on handpump with guests such as Oakham Akhenaten, Oldershaw Grantham Dark and Tring Drop Bar Pale Ale; also, four farm ciders, 11 wines by the glass (including an english house wine), a perry and winter mulled wine.
