When you first catch sight of this pub’s smart exterior, you just know that they take things seriously here, but that doesn’t mean it forgets it’s a pub. The front bar with its adjoining snug and wood burning stove makes a cosy place for a beer and a homemade sausage roll, while the pretty foliage-enclosed rear terrace is great for dinner and drinks on a warm day. Hearty dishes have a pubby element to them too but are re-mastered, refined and raised to a level that will really impress. For example, your fish and chips could include king prawns and squid, while your pork could come with salted gooseberry purée instead of a more familiar apple sauce. Sit in the back room to watch the kitchen team in action; the bright, airy room next door used to be a classroom – a fact alluded to by the eye-catching wall lamps shaped like hand bells.
