Pub
$$$
“The village pub owned by Heston Blumenthal. Absolutely delicious and more affordable than the village's other restaurants. During the summer months The Crown's Garden is a great place to spend any part of the day. They serve Coffee and pastries in the mornings, and have an outdoor kitchen cooking a different menu over hot coals for guests sitting in the garden.”

Meal Takeaway
“The Emperor Of India opened in 2002, and has been building a reputation locally as a one of the places to go for a good Indian meal without the usual "after pub" crowd. The restaurant has consistently been in the British Curry Award's top 30 UK restaurants. House specialities include murgh babe sabah (a medium chicken curry with coriander, ginger, green chillies yogurt and butter) and a lightly spiced chargrilled sea bass. There's plenty of choice for vegetarians too.”
