Blacksmiths ArmsBroughton Mills
Set in great walking country and listed in CAMRAï¿½s National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors, this inn is well worth seeking out. It is unspoilt, featuring original beams, slate floors, oak panelling and a range, all dating back over 300 years. It comprises four public rooms of which three are available to diners; the home-cooked food enjoys considerable acclaim (no food Mon). The bar itself is reserved for drinkers, with an outside patio area making the most of the rural surroundings. Cider makes an appearance in summer.
