“Well kept real ales, carefully selected wine list and exceptional food - in The Good Food Guide since 2009; also in Michelin and Sawdays guides. The dining room and snug have been restored to their original simplicity with lime plastered walls and farmhouse furniture. Candlelight and fresh flowers add a touch of elegance. Benches outside on the village green make a great stopping point on a walk, set in the pretty village of Alstonefield. 8.3 miles away”
