Good Pub Guide Recommended
The friendly licensees have struck just the right balance in this ancient thatched pub between drinkers and diners and the open fires in each room help create a warm and relaxed atmosphere. 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 framed prints of the pub and wooden dining chairs and tables on the red-patterned carpet in the dining room. Greene King IPA and Old Speckled Hen, a beer named for the pub and a guest like St Austell Trelawny on handpump and 16 wines by the glass; friendly service. A well tended lawn at the back has seats and tables, a covered dining area, and a play area for children.
Good Pub Guide Food
Reasonably priced food, using local produce and free-range eggs, includes lunchtime sandwiches (their jumbo hot dog with home-made chilli is popular as are the sizzling fajitas), chicken liver terrine with their own red onion marmalade, crispy breaded mushrooms with garlic mayonnaise, french onion tart, home-baked honey-roast ham with egg or grilled pineapple, shredded duck salad, lasagne, chicken jalfrezi and bass fillets with herb and lemon butter; they also offer a two-course set OAP lunch during the week.
