Attractive former farmhouse with popular food and seats outside
The good pub guide review
Villagers are lucky to have this handsome 17th-c pub on their doorstep by the church, while visitors are pleased to discover somewhere so charming after walking the nearby Devil's Dyke. Head first for the well stocked and simply decorated bar with kitchen chairs around stripped heavy pine tables on dark boards. House ales on handpump are Adnams Southwold and Timothy Taylors Landlord, with two regularly changing guests alongside a decent wine list and Adnams Wild Wave cider. In a panelled section on the left are a few candlelit dining tables, and on the right there's a step down to a red-carpeted part with black leather wall banquettes and dark wooden dining chairs and an open fire. There are picnic-sets in the front garden overlooking the village green.
