The good pub guide review

An excellent range of drinks, coupled with an enticing menu and a lovely setting means that our readers greatly enjoy their visits to this golden-stone inn. The lofty, character bar has a lively feel, exposed roof trusses, flagstones, leather sofas, cushioned wall seats and stools against the counter where friendly staff serve two quickly changing ales on handpump, a couple of draught ciders, 47 good wines by the glass from a fine list, more than 150 gins, a good choice of other spirits and cocktails; background music and board games. Several white-painted, beamed rooms lead off on different levels with cushioned window seats, a mix of tartan upholstered and traditional wooden chairs around tables of varying size on black slates or bare boards, and pictures on painted or stone walls; one room has a glass ceiling. The pub's springer is called Alfie. The garden, with views of open countryside beyond, is charming: there are seats beneath large parasols on a terrace, picnic-sets on grass and a boules pitch. The six bedrooms are stylish and well equipped and breakfasts are highly rated. Good walks from the door.
