Known locally as the ‘top hotel’, this well-loved country pub has classy refurbished heritage rooms and a warm and welcoming atmosphere at a budget price. If the collection of games and books in the guest lounge doesn’t suit, settle in by the fire to enjoy a beer with locals in the wood-panelled horseshoe bar, which dates from the days when this pub was the centre of country life. They also have a bottle shop, bistro and restaurant, and from time to time a visiting chef is brought in to create gourmet masterpieces. Breakfast is laid out as a self-serve buffet in the bistro.
