Geetie opened the first organic pub in the world over 20 years ago in London, and she continues to fly the flag for super sustainable cooking and sourcing. Menus, chalked up on the blackboard, change daily. This is fresh, modern cooking at its best: everything is made from scratch, there’s an emphasis on veggie dishes, and the bar snacks are divine (don’t expect bags of crisps here).
This rambling mid-19th century inn has been thoughtfully revived. Inside the feel is welcoming with a good mix of colours, eclectic furniture and local art. Prop up the bar for a glass of something local and organic – we recommend the Negroni; call in for Staff Tea in the early evening – this is what the friendly team will be having for supper.
Tucked upstairs the nine bedrooms (two are dog-friendly, one has a balcony) are as carefully curated as the menus downstairs. Sink into your organic mattress then wander down for breakfast – just baked sourdough, granola, fruit, shakshuka, bacon and rosti.
