Lovely old pub with traditional furnishings in bar and dining room, real ales, tasty food and seats in garden
Good Pub Guide Recommended
This is a lovely old building with a lot of history it may have been the medieval guild hall for the pretty village, and its heavy-set moulded Tudor beams and timbers were certainly built to last. The three rooms are more-or-less open-plan with a mix of burgundy cushioned stools, nice old dining chairs and settles in the friendly bar and wooden dining chairs and tables on the red-patterned carpet in the dining room; framed prints of the pub too. Open fires in each room help create a warm and relaxed atmosphere, all helped along by the friendly licensees. Greene King IPA and Old Speckled Hen, Mauldons Bronze Adder and Timothy Taylors Boltmaker on handpump and a dozen wines by the glass. A well tended lawn at the back has seats and tables, a covered dining area and a play area for children.
