Traditional oak-beamed country pub dating back to the 1600s full of character and with many historic photos of life in this pretty village on display. A real gem. The central bar has an inglenook fireplace with log fire and there are two adjoining restaurant areas. Lunchtime food has a varied menu including carvery and vegetarian options. Evening meals are also served daily. Dogs on leads welcome in the main bar. Same welcoming landlord for last 11 years. A community shop staffed by volunteers operates from a separate unit in the car park.
