Popular village local with a good choice of ales; bedrooms
The good pub guide review
The church opposite this popular pub is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Once a farmhouse, it's been a pub since 1838 and offers a fine choice of real ales on handpump: Banks's Mild, Hobsons Best, M&B Brew XI, Skinners Betty Stogs and Wye Valley HPA plus guests, three real ciders and 12 wines by the glass. The carpeted bar is nice and relaxed, with a mix of furniture tidily laid out, neatly curtained small windows, low-beamed ceilings and some local memorabilia on the cream-painted walls; background music, TV and board games. The modern dining areas are fresh and airy with farmhouse, wheelback and cane chairs around a mix of tables on stripped floorboards. There is a neat hedged garden with picnic sets and tables and chairs. The nine reasonably priced bedrooms are quiet and comfortable with bright décor. This is an attractive village.
