Good Pub Guide Recommended
This charming building 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. The 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, a beer named for the pub and guests such as Rudgate Ruby Mild and St Austell Proper Job on handpump and 13 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.
Good Pub Guide Food
Using good local produce, the fairly priced food includes lunchtime sandwiches, peppered mackerel pâté with wholegrain mustard cream, garlic mushrooms with garlic mayonnaise, vegetarian enchiladas, beer-battered haddock and chips, sausages with onion gravy, cajun chicken, gammon with egg or pineapple, and puddings such as crumble of the day and dark chocolate délice with hazelnut praline and chantilly cream.
