The good pub guide review
The lovely hanging baskets and tubs make quite a show at the front of this Batemans pub in summer. The terrific range of drinks chosen by the hands-on, hard-working licensees includes half a dozen real ales on handpump including Batemans XB, XXXB and seasonal ales, two farm ciders, eight wines by the glass, 30 gins and 20 malt whiskies. The simply decorated bar has a thriving atmosphere, comfortable wall banquettes, pubby furnishings and stools along the counter, while the snug has red-cushioned wall settles and high-backed wooden dining chairs. A beamed and extended dining room is neatly set with an attractive mix of wooden or painted chairs around chunky tables on floorboards, and there's a woodburning stove. Throughout, the cream or yellow walls are hung with old village photos and country pictures. The garden has a new patio area with a pergola and rattan-style furniture.
