A Hall & Woodhouse pub that specialises in food. I found the staff a bit pushy. She wanted me to choose a meal before I had a chance to look at the menu and asked if she could get me a drink while I was deciding. Two of the small tables were wobbly so I sat at a large table. I chose Badgers Firkin Fox, a foxy brown beer served in a Firkin Fox beer glass and a duck leg in orange sauce. The meal took twenty minutes to arrive with a complimentary salad but was worth the wait. By the time I left both the pub and the car park were full so it is popular with the locals. Inn serves curry on Monday evenings and fish and chips on early Friday evenings with half a pint of beer at reasonable prices. Pleasant pub but could do with some beer mats under the short table legs to keep the tables steady.

Historic pub with car park. Friendly staff, roaring fire, Christmas tree and piped Christmas music. Good pint of Fursty Ferret and good food. Food took over 20 minutes but was worth the wait. Delivered with complimentary salad. Plaque with Tolpuddle Martyrs' names. Sold postcards and Martyrs chocolate.

An excellent pub, if ever there was a deserving 10/10 then here it is. The welcome was warm, friendly and welcoming, the beer from Hall & Woodhouse excellent, and the menu superb. We both had steak, the menu just lists local Aberdeen Angus Steak, and the waiting staff make the recommendation depending on what they have in the kitchen and how you like it cooked, I ordered a rare rump, and my wife a well done rib-eye, we were offered the option of a sauce, when I asked what they had, I was told that chef could do what ever I wanted, I had a peppercorn, and amazingly no extra charge. While we were waiting for our meal, we had a complimentary salad bowl to while away a few minutes, and when main course arrived - fantastic.
Prices are higher than some 'Pub Companies' but they don't offer this type of quality. There was a flyer on the table explaining we could join there 'friends' scheme to get 15% off and free access to a local stately home, we did not do it as we are still house hunting, but we liked the pub, and the village, so will be back - maybe for good.
