“Until I visited the Old Barn I thought gundogs were blundering buffoons with dreadful taste in collars. But in this hostelry I had my opinions well and truly challenged by Jemima – a quite delightful bitch.

“Shooting parties often visit the Old Barn due to its location and because the chef serves good, local produce. In fact, it was after a rare 8oz Leics fillet steak that Jemima made her presence felt.

“Oh, how the scales fell away from my prejudiced eyes!”

The Old Barn, Glooston
