Friendly, unspoilt pub with local beers and tasty, fair-priced food

Dating back to the 14th c and steadfastedly old-fashioned, this fine old place is set down a narrow winding lane close to the church. The room on the left was once a smithy and has forge tools and horseshoes on high oak beams, cushioned pews and mate's chairs, and a log fire in the original raised hearth with its tall central chimney. There's Branscombe Vale Branoc, Golden Fiddle and Summa That on handpump, two local ciders and eight wines by the glass. On the right, an irregularly shaped snug room has another log fire, a white-painted plank ceiling with an unusual carved ceiling rose, brown-varnished panelling, a flagstone floor and local artwork for sale; darts and board games. You can sit outside on the front loggia and terrace listening to the little stream gurgling beneath the flagstoned path; barbecues and spit roasts may be held on Sunday evening from 6pm (end July-early September). Good coastal walks.
