It’s still early days for Grain Store chef, Mark Block, who took over this celebrated county inn in January 2018. While there’s the odd complaint – of food that’s “competent but has no zing” – the general sense is that, despite the former regime being “quite a tough act to follow, it’s doing nicely under the new ownership”: no longer chasing Michelin stars, but “very much a rural pub with good food”.

It’s all change at this well-known country inn, where owners the Winters, who held on to a Michelin star for seven years, made way for Grain Store chef Mark Block in January 2018. Despite promptly losing the accolade, early reports praise the “excellent, proper food” – and “to top it all, you can still get a decent pint”.
