Good Pub Guide Recommended
It's distinctly lively here at weekends, with live bands playing, but even at busy times the place ticks along very well. There's a great deal of unpretentious character in the many small interconnected bars with their interesting bric-a-brac, local pictures, photographs and posters - as well as solid old wood pews, antique chairs and tables and cushioned window seats; log fires, too. A sensitive extension provides some much-needed family space; board games. Courage Directors, Harveys Best and a guest beer such as Theakstons Double Cross IPA on handpump and decent wines by the glass. Outside at the back, there are some tables beyond a big raised goldfish pond and a boules pitch; the church opposite has the interesting Jefferay Monument. Popular weekend live music and vintage and kit car meetings outside the pub every month. This is a pleasant area for walks. Note that dogs are allowed in one bar only.

Exceptionally good value and well liked, the bar food includes filled rolls, french onion soup, green-lipped mussels, hock of ham, large yorkshire pudding filled with roast beef, stilton and walnut pie, spicy prawns mexicano on a bed of rice, and puddings such as rasberry pavlova or chocolate sponge pudding.
