MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Don’t be put off by the rat sign swinging outside or the roadside location, as you can’t help but love this rustic, candlelit former pub with its quirky, bohemian-style interior. It’s a truly welcoming place with relaxed shabby-chic styling, an eclectic display of curios and a fire burning in the grate – not forgetting a friendly team. Start with a drink upstairs in the richly decorated bar or outside in one of the lovely heated straw huts on the terrace; as well as some carefully chosen wines and cocktails, they offer a selection of over 30 different gins. Jon Marsden-Jones and his team carefully prepare refined, innovative British dishes which showcase items that they’ve foraged or plucked from their allotment. Portions are hearty, flavours really pack a punch there is a beguiling originality to the presentation.
