It's probably been there since Roman times since a hoard of silver coins was found a few years ago in a field near the village.
This area is loved by visitors, many of whom enjoy meals at the imposing and yet friendly Clarendon Hotel, a pub with a warm welcome and excellent food made by Alsatian (from Alsace not German Shepherd!) chef and owner Lionel Strub.
A few yards away is the Old School which dates back to 1874. The school closed and in 2007 was turned into the wonderful Old School Tea Room, run by Maggie and her daughter Emma.
It really is a fantastic spot, characterful and cosy. The menu is interesting and extensive, with some excellent cakes and meals as well as range of great gifts and cards. There's a very pretty outdoor seating area in the garden, with wonderful views.
