Welcome to The Who'd A Thought It

In July 2017, Howard and Lucy Spooner became The Who’d A Thought It’s new landlords and are thrilled to begin an exciting new chapter for this well-loved village pub. The Spooner passion for providing quality meat, and other food and drink, goes back over generations of family butchers. The pub’s decor echoes this history with walls displaying meat cleavers, butchers’ hooks and bulls’ heads. Howard’s 25 years’ experience in creating and operating clubs and bars in London and Verbier, is evident in maximising the customer space and experience. The recent grand refurbishment to ‘The Who’d A’, as it has affectionately become known, has brought the bar and restaurant a relaxed elegance with the use of leather and hide prints, comfortable furnishings and atmospheric lighting.

The constantly changing menu, which specialises in steak, made with the freshest and best local produce, also includes sharing platters, traditional wholesome pub dishes, and a comprehensive range of meat cuts with interesting sauces and sides. Sunday lunch will continue to offer the full menu along with other special meat cuts.

With four children and three dogs, Howard and Lucy’s commitment to family is clear from the dedicated baby changing room, delicious children’s menu, high chairs and toddler’s crockery through to the £30,000 children’s obstacle course and play area which occupies half of the enormous beer garden.

Whether you pull up a luxurious hide-covered bar stool for a pint or choose a cocktail from our extensive drinks menu, dine in style on our warm leather banquette seating inside, relax in the enclosed garden watching the children play or cosy up on our terrace under a heated ‘Jumbrella’, it's a great place to sample our broad and imaginative menu. We are open 11am-11pm seven days a week.
