The Whip is probably my favorite place in the area. Nestled in horse country with authentic British charm. Delicious food and friendly service.. Welsh rarebit, scotch eggs, and sticky toffee pudding are just a few favorites..

Love The Whip! Cozy pub atmosphere, great service, delicious food! Have been several times and always enjoy the visit. Love Welsh Rarebit. Scotch egg is tasty and different than most pub fare. Sticky toffee pudding is the star of the show!

I ordered their quiche for the day special. Thought the concept was interesting and I was right. Give it a try sometime.

I think you can. The food was good and not priced too bad. But watch the drinks. I think they charge $7 a beer
