Good Pub Guide Recommended

13th-c thatched inn with friendly, hard-working young licensees, real ales and interesting bar food
With fair prices for drinks and food, prompt and friendly service and a good mix of customers, it's no wonder that this pretty, thatched pub is so busy. The beamed and flagstoned bar has traditional furnishings including various dining chairs, window seats and wall settles, a log fire in the inglenook fireplace with lots of horsebrasses on the wall above it, and a relaxed atmosphere. The back bar has an enormous collection of miniature bottles and there's also a more formal dining room; lots of copper implements and platters. Branscombe Vale Branoc, Otter Bitter and a changing local guest beer on handpump, several wines by the glass and up to 20 malt whiskies; background music and a double skittle alley. In summer, the hanging baskets are pretty and there are seats in the garden. Apart from the church, this is the oldest building in the parish.

Good Pub Guide Food

Good and often inventive, the food might include sandwiches, pork belly and pancetta in puff pastry with apricot, cider and raisin chutney, venison meatballs with a mustard, tarragon and rosemary cream, spiced lamb burger with feta and mint relish, cajun potato wedges and beetroot coleslaw, lemon sole and crab lasagne with a spicy tomato sauce, and puddings such as vanilla crème brûlée with home-made shortbread and ginger and toffee sponge with custard.

Bar food times: 12 - 2, 6.30 - 9
