This is a typical 'country pub/hotel'. We did not stay but booked for Sunday lunch. Clearly popular with visitors and locals alike. And whether you are a regular or first timer the welcome is equally warm and attentive. When we booked the option to eat outside if its warm was 'automatically' offered.
And it was warm. We were shown to our table and accepted the offer of an umbrella which appeared as if from nowhere. A neighbouring table for 6 needed 2 which was difficult so sun hats were produced. Now that's service.
The menu and specials included some really creative - though not outlandish - dishes. We chose the soft shell crab with apple and fennel salad. Stunning. Followed by fresh made doughnuts with 3 dips and treacle, almond and ginger tart. All excellent and produced to order. No prepackaged stuff here.
The next day after a strenuous walk we needed a drink and a sit. We chose the comfortable bar. Clearly a place for locals to meet it had the feel of a club but one where if you weren't a member you were just as welcome.
The ham and pear chutney sandwiches were splendidly big and very fresh. Judging by what others had ordered the food here is consistently of a high standard.
Must remember to book earlier next time so we can enjoy an evening meal.
