A special place for a drink, a meal or an overnight stay; bedrooms

Of course, the excellent food and carefully chosen range of drinks come in for top praise, but it's also true that this gently civilised inn remains so appealingly and remarkably unstuffy. Once labourers' cottages, the various small and attractive bar rooms have a country feel, with dark joists and beams, rustic furniture, an interesting mix of pictures (some by local artists), candles on tables and a cosy log fire in a stone inglenook fireplace; background music, bar billiards and board games. There's a beer named for the pub, Timothy Taylors Landlord and guests from Grainstore or Oakham on handpump, an enticing wine list (with at least 25 by the glass or carafe), a thoughtful choice of spirits and cocktails (they make their own using seasonal ingredients) and several british and continental bottled beers. Service is efficient and genuinely friendly. Outside, there are tables, chairs and big plant pots on a pretty little terrace, with seating on the neat lawn, sheltered in the crook of the two low buildings. A renovated Georgian property across the road from the main pub houses the individually decorated, restful bedrooms, and breakfasts are delicious. The wine shop also sells their own jams and chutneys, you can order individual dishes to take away and they can even organise food for a dinner party at home.
