After several months of closure, this attractive, comfortable free-house re-opened in January 2016 under new ownership and after some refurbishment. The main open plan bar area features beamed ceilings and wood pillars, with a 24-foot diameter 19th-century overshot water-wheel visible at one end. (The water-wheel is awaiting restoration and is not currently operational.) A smart restaurant, with exposed roof trusses, is upstairs and normally set out for around 40 guests, but can cater for up to 56.
Meals are mainly English, Indian or Italian (there is a dedicated pizza kitchen with pizza oven); separate menus for evenings, Saturday lunch and Sunday lunch (see website).
