Good Pub Guide Recommended

Friendly old village pub with some fine architecture, real ales and tasty food; bedrooms

In this former coaching inn dating back in part to the 16th c, you'll be able to pick out some interesting features, such as original masonry, beams and trusses. The L-shaped, low-ceilinged front bar (on two levels) has a woodburning stove in a huge fireplace, lots of wheelback chairs and cushioned pews around pubby tables on a wood-strip floor and gold patterned wallpaper; there's a step up to an area in front of the bar counter where there are similar seats and tables and a log fire in a brick fireplace. Helpful staff serve Adnams Ghost Ship, Black Sheep and Greene King Abbot and IPA on handpump, around a dozen wines by the glass and several malt whiskies; background music, darts and board games. There's a separate dining room with another brick fireplace. The sheltered garden has picnic-sets under parasols and the inn faces the tree-lined village green. Bedrooms are warm and comfortable. Nearby are the remains of a Norman castle and a cluniac priory (English Heritage).
