Bustling village pub with plenty of seating space, real ales, quite a choice of food and friendly staff
Good Pub Guide Recommended
At the heart of a peaceful village, this solidly built 17th-c pub is popular for its highly thought-of food. The spacious lounge bar has a woodburning stove in a sizeable fireplace, handsomely moulded dark oak beams, leather sofas, stools and bucket armchairs on big terracotta tiles, and stripped stonework. A formidable carved counter has a beer named for the pub (from Marstons), Digfield Fools Nook, Marstons Pedigree and Wychwood Hobgoblin on handpump, lots of wines by the glass and a farm cider. The more formal dining rooms have high-backed leather and other dining chairs around quite a choice of chunky tables on pale wooden floorboards; background music. There are picnic-sets under parasols on the front grass and a children's play area.
Good Pub Guide Food
Pleasing food includes lunchtime sandwiches, open ravioli with pheasant ragoût, devilled whitebait and lemon mayonnaise, wild mushroom, spinach and goats cheese vol-au-vent with a poached egg and pimento cream, free-range pork sausages with mash and onion gravy, beer-battered cod and chips, bass fillets with creamy tomato sauce, king prawns, tarragon and deep-fried courgettes, trio of lamb cutlets with port and redcurrant jus, and puddings such as turkish delight cheesecake and chocolate mousse tart with raspberry sorbet; they also offer a two-course set lunch.
