Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Housed within a 17th-century building and kept dry by a chocolate box thatch, the Drewe Arms is a lovely place to linger. Despite only taking over a year ago, Gary Hitching has taken the pub from strength to strength, creating a loyal fan base of both villagers and those from further afield. I can personally attest to the exceptional hospitality, with my guest and I having felt welcome from the moment we stepped through the door.
Fine food is prepared by chefs Reuben and Luke, and is made up of produce from neighbouring suppliers. The menus are vast and informative, allowing those with allergies and intolerances to dine with ease. I started with the wild mushroom risotto, whilst my guest picked the warm goat's cheese salad. Both were packed with flavour. Mains promptly followed - a succulent 10oz ribeye accompanied by juicy, roasted tomatoes for myself, and the delightful daily special of ham hock pie matched with mash and fresh vegetables for my companion. To finish, we indulged in a sticky toffee pudding with custard, which proved heavenly. A great selection of ales, ciders and wines were available to accompany our meal, and had we booked into the pub's guest rooms, we would have definitely sampled more.
