Dinner with friends, and as soon as you walk in, this warm old pub pushes the relax button. A good basic choice of wine and some fine Oldershaw's real ale set us up to study the blackboard. Courgette and mint fritters, stilton and broccoli soup and mussels in a wine/cream/leek sauce got us started, all good though the fritters were reported as too salty. Interesting tasty mains were: "Ham, egg and beans", which turned out to be smoked ham hock with green beans in vinaigrette with a lightly poached egg, and was delicious; crispy belly pork, again very good; the other two had a tasty devon crab salad. Puddings were gin sorbets and a melting chocolate pudding with milk iced cream which was excellent. It is all served in a very laid back jolly manner by the young staff. Haute cuisine it is not; friendly and interesting with some original tasty food it is.
