Good Pub Guide Recommended

Interesting building with stylish main bar, carefully chosen wines, three ales and good fresh fish dishes; bedrooms

To make the most of this handsome inn, why not stay overnight in the comfortable bedrooms; breakfasts are highly regarded. Built as a hunting lodge on the Dering Estate, it has an imposing frontage, mullioned arched windows and dutch gables. The high-ceilinged, stylishly plain main bar has a solid country feel with a variety of wooden furniture on flagstones, a roaring log fire in a big fireplace, country prints and some fishing rods. The smaller half-panelled back bar has similar dark wood furnishings, plus an extension with a woodburning stove, comfortable armchairs, sofas and a grand piano; board games. A beer named for the pub from Goachers and Goachers Gold Star Ale on handpump, 11 good wines by the glass from a fine list, local cider, 30 malt whiskies and 20 cognacs. Classic car meetings (the long-serving landlord James has a couple of classic motors) are held here on the second Sunday of the month.
