When we arrived at the Butlers Arms on a Tuesday evening it was full to bursting: dressed-down locals brushed past straight-backed suited types, while clustered groups of young women chatted beside social parties of pensioners. The decor was as eclectic as the clientele; classic leaded windows and soaring ceilings contrasted fantastically with the bright, striped wallpaper and the enormous multi-coloured sculpture crafted from scrap metal which stood resplendent in the bar.

But the food was our top priority - and what a treat it proved to be. I started with a meaty slab of chicken and ham hock terrine perfectly offset by tangy pear and date chutney - magnificent. My partner chose the platter of home-smoked fish and was enchanted; the trout was both delicate and powerful, the salmon and mackerel exquisite. The main course was another triumph. The tender belly pork fell apart and came with a sweetly complementary apricot stuffing, while the lightly flavoured hake was delicious alongside robust Mediterranean veg and new potatoes.

By dessert our expectations were sky high - and met with aplomb. My companion plumped for satisfyingly sticky banana pudding drenched in gorgeous toffee sauce, while I went for creamy almond and amaretto cheesecake and devoured every crumb. I'd urge you to try this restaurant for yourself, but also to pre-book your table so as not to miss out.
