Summary

A “delightful posh pub”, which “draws diners from miles around” with its “short and precise menu sourced from local ingredients and suppliers”. It’s an “accommodating” place (including to children), but strikes a couple of reporters as “a bit self-conscious in its tweedy smartness – the ‘county’ set comes here!”
