Inn on the Green
Nicely modernised place with a happy atmosphere, thoughtfully prepared food and several ales
The good pub guide review
This stone pub overlooking the village green is a good all-rounder, run by experience and established owners. Many customers are here for the excellent food, while the informal, pubby bar with its log fire is popular with locals. Here you'll find Sharps Doom Bar and three guests, such as local Ferry Ales, Milestone Welsh Dragons, Oldershaw Mosaic Blonde and Pheasantry Best Bitter and Roosters Buckeye, on handpump, ten wines by the glass, 20 malt whiskies and 40 gins, served by attentive staff. Several tables here may also be occupied by those enjoying the tasty food. The beamed and timbered dining room is spread over two floors, with lots of exposed brickwork, local prints and a warm winter fire; do book ahead to be sure of a table. The lounge between these rooms has leather sofas and background music and a bar counter where you can buy home-made jams, marmalade and chutney. They hold a quiz every other Wednesday. Dogs are allowed outside (and in the bar on days when there is no food service).
