Sore calf cured out of doors (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

alfresco

'out of doors' is the definition.
(synonyms)

'sore calf cured' is the wordplay.
'cured' is an anagram indicator.
'sore'+'calf'='sorecalf'
'sorecalf' anagrammed gives 'ALFRESCO'.

(Other definitions for alfresco that I've seen before include "Located outdoors" , "Out of doors" , "Open-air" , "where it's cool" , "exposed to the fresh air" .)
