The mushy peas were homemade, the beer batter to die for and the beef dripping that the chips were cooked in made this the best FCP we have tasted for years. Awesome. Next time we are having the freshly cooked liver and onions. We will...More

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... .
