New landlord is keeping good real ales at reasonable prices. I have yet to try his new menu which I hope to do so shortly. Friends tell me its much improved from previous landlord.

We have stayed here before, on the whole it is a great place for a one night stay, to visit the local,area. Rooms do present as a little tired, but very comfortable. Food and service is excellent.

Beautiful 16th Century Pub with Accommodation having a comfortable, traditional feel with a slight contemporary twist. Here at the Hardinge we are focusing on keeping the great british pub alive, with fantastic kept ales, a beautiful wine selection and home made fresh food. We offer a traditional pub menu, from our famous ham and eggs to something slightly more special from our specials board like our locally shot present... Tom and I have been here since February 2013, and have endeavoured to make a friendly and happy pub, so why not come down and try us... .
