Unassuming from the outside but with character bars, real ales and interesting food; comfortable bedrooms

If the weather is warm you can sit on the front terrace here and take in the pleasant setting (the village green and big duck ponds are opposite); there are also seats and a play area in the enclosed back garden. The cosy bars have leather sofas and armchairs, a mix of antique wooden dining tables and chairs on flagstones or stripped wooden floors, a very high-backed settle, 18th- and 19th-c quirky prints and cartoons, and plenty of beams and standing timbers; the three woodburning stoves are put to good use in winter. At the back of the pub is the Blenheim room, just right for a private group, and there's also a candlelit dining room. Adnams Broadside and Ghost Ship and Woodfordes Wherry and Nelsons Revenge on handpump and a dozen wines by the glass, served from a bar counter made of great slabs of polished tree trunk; background music, TV, darts and board games. Nine bedrooms are named after famous local sportsmen and airmen from the World War II air base in Massingham. Wheelchair access.
