They serve (quite brilliantly!) over a hundred different gins in this delightful and unusual inn housed in an old schoolhouse. They also make sure that your cup of tea remains perfectly hot as all teapots wear knitted tea cosies!The lively bar/restaurant has a slightly bohemian look with its huge old fashioned radiators, faded leather banquettes, cushions and a mixture of wooden tables in the former school rooms open up to the rafters. A large stag's head presides over it all! There is also outdoor seating, and some tables in a covered terrace thoughtfully providing seating for the oft neglected smoking community.Meals feature seasonal produce, are very well cooked and copious in size as well as being very fairly priced. Mains from £12 upwards and good sharing plates at £13.00. Needless to say this inn is extremely popular with the local population. The Full English breakfast looked wonderful but we were tempted by the bacon butties instead.
The bedrooms are located in the next door "Headmaster's House" and are quiet and charmingly furnished in a homely style with thick curtains and comfortable beds. There was an excellent shower in our room with both hand held wand and overhead shower head, A nice assortment of bathroom goodies, homemade cookies on the hospitality tray and even a pair of knitted covered hot water bottles added to the feeling of the care taken by this inn in welcoming its guests. I certainly look forward to a return visit.
