We went for lunch on Sunday after checking out the menu on the website and double checking on the menu outside the pub. Menu looked varied, plenty of choice. Great. Then we get there to be presented with the Sunday menu - the usual yawn-fest...More

The Phoenix Tavern is situated in a splendid building with oak frame and beams. Originally a medieval hall house dating from about 1330. The hall was the main bar area and part of the jettied ends was in the Club Room. Though not visible from the ground floor, it has arched tie-beams and two large curved brackets to the posts forming a pointed arch, with a crown post, collar purlin and brackets at either end. The inglenook fireplaces would have been put in much later, in the 1600s, and would have given the residents a vastly improved lifestyle – free of smoke and with better cooking. Though additions have been made to the Building, it offers an historic, traditional feel. The Bar area is divided into 3 parts, The front bar, Back bar and Restaurant dinning area. There is also a Large garden and car park. Our kitchen is open all day for freshly prepared meals.
