It’s set just down the road from its bigger sister, the Hand and Flowers, and its more relaxed and informal style offers a pleasing contrast; with its charming staff, tasty cooking and reasonable prices, this is a pub which will appeal to everyone. The menu sets out its stall with headings of ‘Meat’, ‘No Meat’ and ‘Sweet’; the carefully prepared, unfussy pub dishes are starter-sized, so order a couple each and maybe a side to share and you’ll still have room for dessert. Choices might include duck liver parfait, cottage pie and The Coach profiteroles, and although dishes are simple to look at, they are bursting with punchy flavours. Same day bookings are now taken – and first-come-first-served breakfasts are available at the weekend.
