Combine this enviable location with fantastic food and drink and you’ve got more than enough reasons to stop by. You can expect a cheerful reception from friendly staff, and the warm welcome is extended to canine companions too. There’s an excellent range of well-kept ale, and much more besides. Specialising in fresh local game, the menu has a range of options to suit all tastes, including fresh fish specials and seasonal creations – the roasted Jerusalem artichoke risotto is particularly delicious.
