Classic country pub serving real ales and home-cooked food, at pine tables or in the long garden, not far from lovely Ledbury

Just west of the Malvern Hills – a freehouse dating from the 1600s, sympathetically refurbished. Farmhouse tables and chairs stand on polished flagstones, hops hang from beams and wood-burners crackle in exposed brick hearths – it's country pub to the core. There are ales from Bathams and Wye Valley and good ciders like Robinson's Flagon and Weston's Stowford Press. Traditional home-cooked dishes with a modern twist are the order of the day; try local free-range pork belly with 'boozy' mustard mash or braised venison casserole with spiced red cabbage. Lighter options include deli boards with home-cured meats, sandwiches and homemade golden beetroot soup with horseradish cream. The pretty garden is backed by orchards, while the fires and candles in the bar, two snugs and dining area are kept glowing by a bright and attentive team. A super little pub.
