If you've not visited the pub before, you'll find the Refectory a fascinating building seemingly built from architectural salvage, a legacy of its time under the ownership of a family of renowned antique dealers. The Refectory was originally a cattle barn belonging to Milford House, which is the enormous house to the right of the building as you look at it.
It is extraordinary what you can make of a cattle barn: open fires and ancient wooden beams create a homely, cosy feel, whilst outside the extensive grounds and terrace garden are great for enjoying those rare days of sun.
As well as freshly prepared, locally sourced food, you are sure to find a buzzy atmosphere, plenty of cask ales, and an enviable collection of whiskies.
