Recently refurbished, this rather large pub does exactly what you'd expect of a large pub in the countryside: it's a meeting place where you can have a drink or eat a nice meal without causing any ructions. The size of the pub means that it doesn't normally feel crowded, though we'd guess the outside gets busy when (if?) the weather's better. Decent beers were on tap last time we were in, with a number of guest beers and local brews - too much selection for the sort time we were there. There's a decent menu, with traditional English food alongside more gastro fare, but all reasonably priced and well prepared and presented. The wine list is nothing to sneeze at either, with wines from all over to go with whatever you might choose on the menu. One thing of interest is that they claim to have over 100 kinds of whiskey, though they included rye (bourbon) in this description. We didn't have the opportunity to try all of them, so we'll have to go back again soon.
