See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Lovely 16th century inn located in an area of outstanding natural beauty on Crundale Downs. Oak beams, hanging hops and large fireplaces with woodburners add to the atmosphere. The large garden is popular in the summer. The pub has won food and drink awards under the previous managers - it was Daily Telegraph Gastropub national joint runner up for 2019. Now under new free-of-tie management, modern British food will be available from May 11th 2022, from Michelin starred chef Ben Crittenden, joined by Sam McClurkin. Until then bar meals are available. An in-house brewery is under construction currently promised for summer 2023. Opening hours and food hours vary, check website.
