Known locally as the Spivs, this charming pub is the hub of the community. It started out in the 1800s as a beer shop, and has been lovingly restored by the current owners to celebrate its traditional features combined with modern style and comfort. The decor achieves the perfect blend of old and new, with wood panelling, hanging lighting and cosy nooks in the bar area, and a stylish, contemporary dining room that’s flooded with natural light. The striking cobalt blue bar is stocked with a fantastic selection of tipples, from real ale, lager, and craft beer to the ever-expanding spirits collection.

The team takes its food seriously, and as such you’ll find a fantastic selection of dishes from the seasonal à la carte and daily specials board, as well as a mouth-watering Sunday roast. You might start with the likes of wild mushroom and chicken terrine accompanied by spicy tomato chutney and a sourdough croute, or perhaps the goat’s cheese curd and roasted beetroot tart fine with frisée endive, candied walnuts and balsamic reduction. Follow with the house pie served with buttered greens and mash, or slow-roasted pork belly paired with roast potatoes, roasted root vegetables and a Bramley apple, cider and sage jus.

As you’d expect from such a popular venue, the service is second to none. This stellar establishment is a must-visit for local foodies.
