Good Pub Guide Recommended
Remote dining pub with traditional décor, popular food and friendly staff; bedrooms
Notably welcoming and with enjoyable, honest food, this pub is just right after a hike in the lovely surrounding countryside. Stubs of massive knocked-through stone walls divide the place into several spic and span areas. The cosy dark oak-beamed bar is charmingly traditional with gleaming copper and brass, a warming fire, patterned carpet, low doorways and stools lined up at the counter. Marstons Pedigree and EPA and Wychwood Hobgoblin on handpump, 28 malt whiskies, a farm cider and wines by the glass, all served by friendly, smartly dressed staff; maybe background radio. The outdoor seats on the front terrace by the road and in a courtyard garden are nicely sheltered from the inevitable breeze at this height, and on a clear day you can see five counties. Bedrooms are clean and comfortable.
Bar food times: 12-2, 6-9; 12-9 Sat, Sun
Traditional food includes lunchtime hot and cold sandwiches, deep-fried brie wedges with tomato and red onion chutney, prawn cocktail, liver, bacon and onions, mediterranean vegetable pasta with pesto and parmesan, gammon and free-range eggs, beer-battered fish and chips, toad in the hole with onion gravy, breaded scampi with chips, half a roast chicken with stuffing and gravy, and puddings.
