Stripped pine floorboards, red walls, big wooden tables, and solidly good food and drink set the tone at this contemporary gastro-pub with rooms on the town's main square. It's popular with locals, and the owners take pride in offering seasonal food that mixes British and international influences. There's a different roast every day, including dry-aged beef, and specials might include sea bream with Bombay potatoes and cardamom yogurt, or herb pancakes. Thirteen moderately
priced bedrooms provide stylish lodging in the pub and across the lane.
