Being neighbours with Rathfinny Wine Estate, you’re never too far away from a good bottle of wine. Why not try one of their wine tasting tours. Or if beer is more your thing, the Long Man Brewery is in nearby Litlington. We do sell Rathfinny Sparkling Cuvee and some Long Man refreshments on site, please do ask.

The local village store in Waterloo Square has plenty to offer, with a delicatessan at the rear of the shop. There are plenty of quaint venues for afternoon tea or a spot of lunch, try Badgers Tea Rooms. Much Ado Books store is a best seller too and open every day 11 – 5pm with plenty of choice for everyone.

The village also has a great variety of traditional pubs and restaurants such as The George Inn, Ye Olde Smugglers Inne. Alternatively you can walk by the river along to the Plough & Harrow at Litlington. If you are looking for a more formal restaurant Rathfinny, The Star, Deans Place and The Wingrove won’t disappoint. Or walk/drive to Jevington, the Eight Bells has some great food!
