The Shutters Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
This superb village inn is a hotspot for fantastic food, beer and wine, served at sensible prices. It is said that the pub acquired its name in 1818 when the shutters were removed and used as tables to serve food to large race crowds. Since the new owners took over in 2016, The Shutters Inn has undergone refurbishment to reveal new flooring, a new bar and a friendly restaurant, which is located at the back of the pub. Oak beams, country-chic touches and an airy interior make for the perfect place to rest and refuel.
The food offering comprises lighter bites and breakfast options with a traditional menu alongside a children’s menu. If you’re calling in for a three-course feast, you might like to start with a smoked chicken Caesar salad or Brie wedges rolled in oats, before calling dibs on the Shutters fish pie, topped with mature Cheddar cheese mash, or Mr Lashford’s homemade faggots or sausages. Finish on a sweet note with Eton Mess or a warm, gooey chocolate brownie paired with ice cream. Lunchtime sees the likes of jacket potatoes, panini and baguettes added to the list. Sunny weather calls for unwinding in the large beer garden and patio area with a pint in hand.
