Good Pub Guide Recommended

Ancient low-beamed pub with 16th-c features in open-plan rooms, highly regarded food, real ales and seats in the large garden

Of course the main emphasis here is on dining (not surprising given that the owner is Heston Blumenthal) but there's a friendly, welcoming little bar area with high stools around an equally high table, simple tables and chairs beside an open fire and regulars who drop in for a chat and a drink. They keep Courage Best and Directors, a beer named for the pub and a quickly changing guest on handpump and around 18 wines by the glass. The snug rooms have panelling, heavy old beams - some so low you may have to mind your head - plenty of timbers at elbow height where walls have been knocked through, a second log fire and neatly upholstered dining chairs and cushioned settles; board games. The newly designed garden, complete with an outdoor kitchen and bar, is open from May toSeptember.
