We serve a variety of meals from a BLT to a Trio of Game - wild boar hare and venison - All of our food is freshly cooked to order and always locally sourced. We are a traditional Inn that serves exceptionally good food. We are well known for the variety of real ales available and during the summer months we always have real perry and real cider also available.
