Housed in a chocolate-box thatched stone building, The Heathfield Inn is a 16th-century venue that looks every bit as charming on the outside as what lies beyond its door. An open-plan bar boasts an original fireplace and is well stocked with a range of wine, real ale and spirits. Unwind in the comfy lounge area, or head to the restaurant, where the traditional theme continues with exposed beams, wood panelling and mullion windows. Gather around a table to enjoy the traditional, home-cooked dishes that are crafted with care by the dedicated team. Little ones’ hunger is kept at bay thanks to the children’s menu. Versatility is where this venue excels – the pool room transforms into a reception area, and the function room doubles-up as a skittles alley. Add to the mix seven en-suite bedrooms and you’ve got an all-round venue that beckons a visit.
