Good Pub Guide Recommended

13th-c thatched inn with friendly, hard-working young licensees, real ales and interesting bar food
Just what every pub lover would want; I can't wait to go back,' says one of our more discerning readers. And this pretty thatched longhouse is always full of repeat customers locals or holiday-makers all keen to enjoy the relaxed, happy atmosphere. The beamed and flagstoned bar has traditional furnishings including assorted dining chairs, window seats and wall settles, and a log fire in an inglenook fireplace with lots of horsebrasses on the wall above. 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, enterprising food using local ingredients includes sandwiches, smoked haddock and leek gratin, an antipasti sharing board, butternut squash and goats cheese lasagne, rare-breed pork sausages with onion gravy, beer-battered line-caught pollack and chips, lemon and herb chicken in lemony sauce, tagine of pulled lamb with apricots, raisins and cucumber and cashew nut rice, and puddings such as dark chocolate and Tia Maria cheesecake and apricot and almond frangipane with custard.

Bar food times: 12 - 2, 6.30 - 9
