The only remaining pub in this beautiful upmarket village. Excellent ales looked after by the landlord who is a keen member of CAMRA. The emphasis here is on good value food, served in the restaurant and the bar. Always a good atmosphere with conversation and no piped music. Located in the centre of this long village, near the war memorial and church. Currently listed in the Good Beer Guide. Excellent new extensions were made two years ago and have added much space in the restaurant, with a separate area for drinking only.
