Aragon House is far more discreet than the better-known White Horse on the opposite side of the Green. Only a small brass plaque indicates anything unusual might lurk behind the plain black front door of what looks like just another dark-brick posh period house.
Step inside, though, and you enter a bohemian toff's rustic country retreat. Above a rose-coloured stone floor, pastel yellow walls are adorned with ornate mirrors, large oils and bits of dead deer. Chandeliers cast gentle light over slouchable chesterfields and sturdy chairs clustered around odd-shaped old tables.
Party food platters are supplemented by burgers and a handful of dinner party dishes (lamb shank with parsley mash and a mint jus, or risotto primavera), with weekend brunches or the Sunday roast a popular option. The on-tap selection is equally populist, with lagers including Kronenbourg, Tiger and Peroni, while cider is represented by Aspall's and Scrumpy Jack.
