With exceptional real ales, good food and plenty to look at in this splendid building, it's not surprising our readers enjoy their visits so much. The warm bar - basically four small friendly rooms opened into a single area tucked behind a massive central chimney - contains open fires, broad flagstones, red patterned carpet, sturdy country tables, a couple of long pews and various other seats including a leather chesterfield and a wing armchair. The dining room is rather grand with a great stone chimney soaring into high eaves, refectory tables on a parquet floor, lovely old mullioned windows and a splendid minstrels' gallery. Marstons Burton Bitter and guests from breweries such as Marble, Peak, Phoenix, Thornbridge and Whim on handpump, as well as some interesting lagers on tap, 12 malt whiskies, six cask ciders, a rare range of bottled ciders and (mostly belgian) beers; beer festivals with music are held in late February and September. Also, around a dozen new world wines by the glass and friendly, helpful service. The pretty walled garden has picnic-sets under sycamore trees. Some of the attractive bedrooms look over the garden and there's also a self-catering cottage.
