MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

When you first catch sight of this pub’s smart exterior, you just know that they take things seriously here, but that doesn’t mean it forgets it’s a pub. The front bar with its adjoining snug and wood burning stove makes a cosy place for a beer and a homemade sausage roll, while the pretty foliage-enclosed rear terrace is great for dinner and drinks on a warm day.

Hearty dishes have a pubby element to them too but are re-mastered, refined and raised to a level that will really impress. For example, your fish and chips could include king prawns and squid, while your pork could come with salted gooseberry purée instead of a more familiar apple sauce.

Sit in the back room to watch the kitchen team in action; the bright, airy room next door used to be a classroom – a fact alluded to by the eye-catching wall lamps shaped like hand bells.
