Within this eighteenth-century building lies a pub with a couple of simple but truly wonderful linked rooms at the front, looking much as they would have done when the clientele was made up of farm workers. Red quarry-tiles cover both floors, the walls and ceilings are cased in boarding and there is bench seating throughout. The counters in both rooms have matchboard fronts and curved ends although their date is hard to ascertain (perhaps interwar?). Some of the panelling between the two rooms is evidently quite recent. The farm workers may have gone and the pub is now renowned for high-quality food yet it still has a welcoming, true pub atmosphere. Beer is drawn from casks stillaged behind the servery. Outside gents’. There is a modern but attractive timber garden pavilion to increase the undercover customer accommodation. The restaurant area at the rear does not impact on the historic rooms. Delightful gardens in which a pond houses trout for the pot.
