The good pub guide review
A large modern fire pit inside and sunny garden with deckchairs outside provide a warm welcome at this beautifully restored golden-stone inn, whatever the season. Built in 1770 to take advantage of what was a busy turnpike road, it's now part of the Brunning & Price group. The beamed interconnected bar and dining areas have a lot of character, with cushioned Edwardian-style chairs and leather armchairs grouped around a wide mix of tables on rugs and pale floorboards. Prints and photos cover pale-painted walls, there are books on shelves, mirrors over several open fires, and elegant metal chandeliers, house plants and stone bottles. Friendly young staff serve St Austell Brunning & Price Traditional Bitter and several guests such as Hook Norton Hooky and North Cotswold Green Man IPA on handpump, real cider, 20 wines by the glass, more than 100 gins and numerous malt whiskies; background music and board games. The large garden has good quality seats and tables under a gazebo.
