MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This delightful inn sits in an equally charming hamlet and is the backbone of the local community. The experienced chef-owner Dom Robinson spent time working in London and Dubai before fulfilling his lifelong ambition of opening a place of his own, but he’s keen to keep this a proper pub that the locals can be proud of. Freshly baked loaves sit on the bar, the staff are amiable and music from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s plays in the background. Top-notch ingredients feature in dishes with a classical French base and their unfussy, back-to-basics style belies the precise, well-honed techniques involved in their preparation. The various elements of each dish blend together seamlessly and the flavours are superb. Start with maybe a cheese soufflé, followed by poached halibut Veronique or Spring lamb Provençal, and finish off with rhum baba or prune and Armagnac tart.
