Good Hotel Guide Review

Imaginative pub food and wood-fired summertime pizzas combine with upmarket country comforts at this quirkily renovated roadside inn. The village stream separates the smart dining room from the buzzy bar – pick a side. Here: home-made sausage rolls; mussels and chips; a selection of natural wines and guest ales. There: chef Tom Shaw’s daily-changing menu, perhaps including seared hake, crushed Jersey Royals, wild garlic, potted shrimp butter, samphire. Upstairs, colourful modern bedrooms may have exposed beams or a bay-window reading nook, plus a goose-down duvet, a powerful shower, perhaps a roll-top bath. Summer weekends, join hungry locals for alfresco pizzas in the garden. 4 miles from Shaftesbury.
