The main part of the building is 13th-century so there are ancient flagstones on the floor, the ceilings are low, the walls very thick, the windows small. It’s the perfect pub for a Daphne du Maurier plot to unfold, but you also get home cooked classics on the menu (some with a twist) from ingredients sourced locally.
Irish owners Murrough and Gráinne believe passionately in the pub being a social space and they encourage folk to wind down and enjoy the ‘craic’. They also have a fine reputation for putting on live music events so do check the website before you come. You’ll find hand-pumped ales, a decent wine list and a lovely garden to spill out into on sunny days.
Separated from the pub by the garden are three very comfortable bedrooms with valley views, well-dressed beds and underfloor heating. You can have breakfast (special diets catered for) delivered to your room (two have covered verandas) or head back to the pub.
