Popular country dining pub with enjoyable food and good wines
On a sunny day, take advantage of the plentiful outside seating around this pretty tile-hung pub - in the beer garden at the front, on the terrace and in the side garden. Inside, it's neatly kept and homely with a properly traditional atmosphere. The comfortable saloon bar has fine flagstones, beams, dark wheelback chairs and a 1633 inglenook fireback showing a royal coat of arms. The public bar is plainer. They keep Fullers London Pride, Sharps Doom Bar, Wells & Youngs Bitter and a guest such as Surrey Hills Ranmore Ale on handpump on the glowing copper counter, alongside several wines by the glass. The sympathetic restaurant extension at the side incorporates 17th-c floor timbers from a granary.
