There’s a wine snug, microbrewery and cheese shop all gathered around a lovely courtyard space often featuring live music and pizzas on summer weekends. And with the famous national hunt racecourse just steps away, you can soak up the excitement of nine race days a year and enjoy fun-filled days out.
