Good Pub Guide Recommended

Inn dating from 1643 with character bars, separate restaurant, popular food, real ales and seats on terraces; bedrooms

There are plenty of good walks surrounding this 17th-c inn and high quality food and drink to enjoy afterwards. The two beamed bars have a mix of both locals and visitors, plenty of character and a cosy, nicely old-fashioned feel; big flagstones, wooden floorboards, candlelit tables and winter log fires in two stone fireplaces. The furniture and the bar itself in the upper Mouse Bar were made by Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson craftsmen and have little mice running over the hand-carved tables, chairs and mantelpiece; there's also a small upstairs restaurant. Friendly staff keep a good range of drinks such as Hook Norton Old Hooky, Sharps Doom Bar and a guest such as Butcombe Bitter on handpump, ten wines by the glass, ten gins and ten malt whiskies; background music and a separate skittle alley. The bedrooms have been refurbished and breakfasts are generous. The outside terraces have lots of seats and tables.
