About
In early September, the “Who'd A Thought It” started another chapter in its long history, as father and son (or rather son and father!) Alex and Ian took over the tenancy. The Who'd A is at heart a traditional village pub, dating back to the eighteenth century. The visitor will not take long to determine the theme of the decor, which is firmly rooted in meat and its journey from hoof to table.
 
Alex has been a chef for a decade, mostly in this area, so knows where to get the best local food and how to prepare it and this is at the heart of his menus. The approach is to provide the sort of fare that customers expect at a pub, and at a reasonable price as well as to offer the slightly more adventurous diner something from the specials board which may tempt the palate. A children's menu contains cut down versions of the same, but with some time-honoured children's favourites added.
 
The menus change regularly to provide variety to the frequent diner and to take advantage of seasonal ingredients. Lunch offerings include soup and sandwiches and may include reduced portions of the evening menu on request.
 
Ian's background is IT, but he has run bars in the past and this is the fulfilment of a long-held idea that a pub would be a good retirement. His experience of pubs, though far from continuous, dates back to the Queen's Silver Jubilee. 
 
Rounding out the family takeover is Alex's brother, Christopher. He also has experience in the pub trade over several years, and being a petrolhead will be delighted to discuss with you the finer points of high compression versus turbocharging or the procedure of a V8 top end rebuild!
