Brick-built village pub with cheerful customers and a thoughtful choice of food and drink
The good pub guide review
A bustling atmosphere and friendly service make this lovely old red-brick inn on the village green a standout success. The opened-up bar has white-painted beams, standing pillars, rugs on parquet or wide boards, an assortment of dark wooden dining chairs and tables, and armchairs beside two fireplaces; background music and board games. High chairs line the counter where cheerful, well trained staff serve St Austell Brunning & Price Traditional Bitter and guests such as Ascot Starting Gate, Park Brewery Two Storm Ruby, Reunion Minimalist and Tillingbourne Hop Troll on handpump, 20 wines by the glass, 40 gins and over 40 malt whiskies. An L-shaped dining room has a leather wall banquette and leather and brass-studded dining chairs around a mix of tables and numerous old photos and prints on exposed-brick or painted walls. There's also a comfortable dining room with similar furniture, carpeting and a big elegant metal chandelier. Outdoor seating with parasols is arranged in the little garden at the side.
