Fine old character inn with carefully refurbished bars and dining areas, and imaginative food; comfortable bedrooms

Although mainly 17th-c, some striking features and parts of great antiquity here include thousand-year-old timbers (there was some sort of inn on the site in 947). The bar areas have beams (some hop-draped), big flagstones or bare floorboards, exposed stone walls and open fireplaces; background music and board games. Also, all sorts of cushioned wooden and upholstered chairs, little stools and settles with scatter cushions around myriad tables, church candles and lanterns, books on shelves, stone bottles on windowsills and a woodburning stove. The cosy snug is similarly furnished but also has sofas and armchairs. A beer named for the pub (from Brakspears) plus Brakspears Bitter and a couple of guests on handpump and good wines by the glass and ten gins. There's a dining room with upholstered, high-backed chairs (some with striking blue cushions), and also a conservatory. A raised terrace has rattan chairs and cushioned wall benches around rustic tables intermingled with more contemporary seats. Bedrooms are individually designed and stylish and breakfasts particularly good. This is a lovely small town to visit.
