Named after the founder of Lord’s Cricket Ground, the Thomas Lord is much loved and hard to fault. Remodelling has raised the gastro credentials without losing the community vibe. Join locals (and dogs) over a trio of local Upham ales at the bar, or settle into leather armchairs around winter fires. Cricketing prints and paraphernalia decorate the walls (old bats, balls, caps, shoes) while the darkly beamed bar’s weathered wooden furniture gives way to a duo of dedicated dining areas. Menus are rammed with local produce (including pickings from the pub’s potager) and foodies relish it all, from the dry aged beef burgers to more sophisticated dishes such as pan fried skate wing with mussels and chilli broth. Leave room for scrumptious banana fritter with salt caramel and rum cream. Behind the pub, five double rooms in bespoke wood cabins offer comfortable and quiet beds for the night with antique touches, padded headboards, sparkling shower rooms. In summer, spill into the lovely grounds for a wander.
