Good Pub Guide Recommended

Full of history and character, with fascinating antiques in rambling rooms, and good choice of drinks and food

Trading for nearly 900 years (do read the leaflet documenting its long history), this is an appealing place and the rambling rooms have some fine old features to look out for: huge black ship's timbers, lovely worn floors, carved oak panelling, roaring winter fires with handsomely decorated iron firebacks and cluttered mantelpieces. There's also a massive settle apparently built to fit the curved transom of an Elizabethan ship. Nooks and crannies are filled with a collection of antiques, including rifles, powder-flasks and bugles, ancient pewter and pottery tankards, lots of tarnished brass and copper, needlework samplers and richly coloured stained glass. Belhaven 80/- Ale, Chiltern Pale Ale, Rebellion IPA and Windsor & Eton Conqueror and Guardsman on handpump, a carefully annotated list of bottled beers, 11 malt whiskies, seven gins, farm ciders, perry, somerset brandy and 19 wines by the glass. You can sit outside in a neatly hedged front rose garden or under the shade of a tree; look out for the red gargoyle on the wall facing the car park. The inn is used regularly for filming television programmes such as Midsomer Murders.
