Fodor's Review

Sporting distinctive colorful window boxes, this pretty family-run village pub has been transformed into an enormously popular seafood and steak restaurant. Burgundy leather banquettes line the walls, bentwood chairs sit at plain wooden tables beneath brass ceiling fans, while the cream walls are enlivened by a collection of paintings and photos of local scenes. There are no reservations, but you can take a drink at the bar while waiting your turn, or in summer, retreat

to the wide deck overlooking the river. Happily, it's worth waiting for the fresh, simply prepared local food: Atlantic jumbo prawns with garlic and herb butter served with homemade breads, or smoked and barbecued salmon with capers, red onion, and crème fraîche. Angus sirloin steak is served with homemade onion rings, and kids love the Morrissey beef burger. There are also seven bedrooms overhead.
