Interesting food in comfortably relaxed inn with good drinks and appealing castle views from outside tables; bedrooms

A friendly former coaching inn, dating back in part to 1640, this makes a good base for exploring the lovely Vale of Belvoir - the comfortable bedrooms are in converted stables next door. The heavily beamed main bar has two big tables (one a massive oak construction), a comfortable mix of seating including some handsome leather chairs and banquettes, and a huge boar's head above a good log fire in the big brick fireplace. Among cartoons on the wall are some of the illustrated claret bottle labels from the series commissioned from famous artists. There are more leather seats in a dining area on the left and a corridor leads to the light and airy extended main restaurant and then to another bar; background music. Gloucester Cascade, Greene King Abbot and Ruddles County and Pheasantry Single Hop on handpump, 30 wines by the glass, 50 malt whiskies, around 20 gins, a seasonal cocktail list and a farm cider. There are good quality teak tables, chairs and benches outside and, beyond these, some picnic-sets on the edge of the pub's cricket field, with views of Belvoir Castle.
