eating

A traditional family run 17th Century English pub, with log burners, beams, serving an american smokehouse menu. Including our own recipe 16 hour brisket and burnt ends, 14 hour pulled pork and soft and juicy ribs, and much much more. We have an extensive garden that can cater for well over a hundred people, on nice days we will have the BBQ and wood burning pizza oven fired up and ready to serve delicious fresh pizza and BBQ meats. All this washed down with a great selection of fine wines, real ales and a good selection of other draught beers.

  • Best cheese burger and chicken Caesar salad around,

    Made our way down on a beautiful sunny day and sat in the beer garden enjoying a cider with the other half. We thought better of the sun and found our selfs going inside where it was pleasing to find there was a new air on unit installed. Food is to literally die for we shared a plate of chicken wings which were the best I have ever ate and then I had brisket and bunt ends my first time trying brisket and let’s say I wasn’t disappointed after I cleared the plate. Unfortunately not many desserts on the menu but whilst they have only just reopened I shall look forward to seeing if they add any sundaes or cakes

    A very nice evening, all staff were very efficient and friendly, our food was very nice and i have rebooked for next week with a different party, my only comment is that we found it very noisy and the tables were too close together but as I said I’ve rebooked so I recommend The Hooden
