Overlooking the award-winning green in a picturesque village, this attractive cream-coloured country free house was originally three 17th-century cottages. It is now open plan with the bar and three dining areas unified by bright modern decor, complemented by older beams and log fireplaces. The current owners took over in 2008 and have a passion to marry good food with excellent beers. Up to four guests come from northern micros. Sunday is quiz night. There is accommodation in seven rooms.
