Highwayman Inn  

A grand old coaching inn run by Jim and Karen Clarke, serving Arkells ales (2B, 3B, Kingsdown Ale at time of visit), this pub has a real stage coach in the car park. It has a split level bar with eating and drinking on the lower level (accessible for disabled - though doors are narrow and angled) and toilets and drinking area on upper level (two steps). There are two real fireplaces for the winter to keep warm by, music is quiet and of the Radio 2 ilk, so no loud youngsters to annoy you. The walls are decked out with lots of copper items and not for the animal lovers amongst you, there are stag heads with silly grins on the walls by the top fireplace. There are also animal traps beside them, so don't go here if you hate stuffed animals. Seating is a mixture of Quaker pews and studded leather chairs and seem comfortable after a day in the car. The stonework walls inside are wonderful and give the feeling of a real country inn despite the fast A417 being right outside the door. Genuine beamed ceiling and wall plates predominate, as does the jazzy carpet. For the summer there is an outside drinking area away form the road. A large eating area stretching towards the back serves food lunch and evening (6-10pm) and there is an extensive menu with good quality food. There is something for vegetarians too. Check out the toilets too, they are excellent!
