This brilliant traditional pub serves a wonderful selection of food and drink in relaxed, friendly surrounds. Inside you’ll find a nautical theme befitting of the pub’s moniker – think wooden oars displayed on walls, model ships and photos of historic ocean liners. With plenty of potable options including local Badger ale and New World wine, as well as all the popular lagers and spirits, The Yachtsman is a great spot for a drink with friends and family. Why not take your drink outside to the spacious beer garden where your little ones can enjoy the play area?

We visited to sample the delicious fare on offer, and after our attentive waiter showed us to our seats and we were promptly served our starter – a generous helping of vegan Buffalo-spiced tempeh wings to share. Accompanied by delicious vegan aioli, the wings were flavoursome and moreish – we didn’t miss the meat at all. For the main course, the preserved lemon- and garlic-roasted chicken leg stood out to me, and I wasn’t disappointed. The chicken was beautifully tender and served with Dauphinoise potatoes, charred tenderstem broccoli and lemon dressing. My partner plumped for the roasted squash, tenderstem and cream cheese tart with homemade almond pesto and a fresh salad of cherry tomatoes, red onion and rocket. I couldn’t resist a bite and was astounded by how such a simple-sounding dish could be so tasty. With fantastic food and drink, a wonderful atmosphere and excellent service, The Yachtsman ticks all the boxes.
