The Crown at the centre of the village is a short walk away. Part of the Vintage Inn chain, it serves good reasonably priced food in comfortable surroundings. In warm weather it is worth eating out in the large garden.

The Three Tuns is our local and a short 5 minute stroll along our lane. It is an atmospheric 17th century thatched village pub with well kept real ales. But it is the restaurant that makes the Tuns attractive. Local produce cooked to an inspirationally high standard. Fine dining in a relaxed, informal setting. 

The Carpenter's Arms is tied to Fullers Brewery, London and is billed as 'the Family pub'. It is popular with the younger set who enjoy sport on a large screen TV and pool in the snug. A large restaurant serves up reasonably priced, honest, home-cooked meals of a traditional nature.
