The Baskerville offers a memorable experience in a marvellous location with a perfect blend of traditional village pub, first class restaurant, where food really does matter and superb accommodation.
With well appointed, en-suite rooms featuring luxury pocket sprung single and king size beds, the Baskerville is the perfect place to stay the night either for business or just for a leisurely break. The bar with its sporting memorabilia offers four cask ales and over 40 malt whiskies is the place to meet the locals and engage in conversation or simply to relax with the newspaper. It is cool in the summer and cosy in the winter with roaring log fires.
The Baskerville’s cuisine is modern British with continental and eastern influences.
All dishes are homemade, prepared from basic ingredients and cooked to order. Not only are they well balanced in their flavours and a delight on the eye, they are unpretentiously a testament to the creative talents, imagination and flair of our passionate brigade under Head Chef, Marc Price.
Our menus change frequently to reflect seasonality and availability. Our produce is sourced from long standing, tried and trusted suppliers and is delivered fresh, daily and is locally and organically sourced where practical.
