The Crown Inn
'Smartly updated inn facing the village green with a genuine welcome for all,' says Fiona. 'Using only small local suppliers, smoking their own fish and baking daily bread, the food is exceptional.' On the menu are pork-belly terrine, a 24-day-hung rib-eye and wild venison and pumpkin pie.
