Summary

“Who would have thought, in an out-of-the-way spot such as this, that such a high standard of cooking can be achieved?” – but, defying expectations, “the chef knows his onions” at this 15th-century smugglers’ inn, and “they seem to pride themselves on sourcing as much local produce” as possible (down to the on-site pigs).

Summary

A “cosy”, 15th-century smugglers’ inn, “particularly on a winter’s night”, when “you can sit on huge high-backed settles around an open fire”; the food is “mainly meat-based”, but no less “excellent” for that – and there’s a particular shout-out for the “porky platter” (the pigs being reared on site).

Summary

This 15th-century smugglers' inn is “as good now as it was under previous ownership a few years ago”; it serves “really surprising” food, “with a lot being from their own produce” (not least the in-house goats).

Summary

“One evening I heard the landlady say: I must go and get the goats in” – evidence that they take local sourcing seriously at this “great little place”, where the food is often “superb”!

"Traditional country pub setting. Good selection of fresh and smoked fish. Simple approach with generous portions. Adnams beers add to the experience."
