16th-c inn with old-fashioned bar, airy dining rooms, local real ales, tempting food and seats outside; charming bedrooms

This is a smashing little all-rounder - as reflected by the warm reports we receive. You'll get a genuine welcome from the hands-on licensees and the lovely old bar has beams, pubby tables and chairs on an old wooden floor, and a fine log fire in an inglenook fireplace. Harveys Best and Old Ale and guests such as Bedlam Hibernation, Firebird Parody Session IPA and Larkins Traditional on handpump, as well as two local farm ciders, local apple juice, over 20 wines by the glass or carafe (plus six locally made sparkling wines) from a carefully chosen list, and a growing list of non-alcoholic choices. Look out for the glass cover over the 75-ft deep well. Light, airy dining rooms have a nice mix of wooden dining chairs and tables on pale wood-strip flooring, and throughout there are hops, china platters, brass and copper ornaments and a gently upmarket atmosphere. Glass doors from a contemporary-style garden room open on to a terrace with teak furniture. The cocker spaniel is called Harvey. Bedrooms are comfortable and well equipped and breakfasts are particularly good. Disabled access. Parking is limited but there is a public car park 300 metres away. Steam train enthusiasts can visit the Bluebell Railway, and the Priest House in the village is a fascinating museum in a cottage endowed with an extraordinary array of ancient anti-witch symbols.
