The good pub guide review

The rooms at this stylish golden-stone inn contain all manner of hare paraphernalia, including photos, paintings, statues, a large glass case with stuffed boxing hares, motifs on scatter cushions and so forth. There's a bar and a couple of little drinking areas warmed by a woodburning stove, with various dining areas leading off: wooden floors, dark grey or dark green painted or exposed stone walls, painted beams, big gilt-edged mirrors and seating that includes stools, wooden or leather dining chairs, long button-back wall seats and cushioned settles around tables of every size ' each set with a little glass oil lamp. Splashes of bright colour here and there brighten things considerably. Stools line the counter, where friendly, well trained staff serve three real ales from breweries such as Butcombe and Hook Norton on handpump and 11 wines by the glass. The garden has tables, benches and chairs on a terrace and a lawn.
