About the Pub

An intimate stone-built hostelry on the edge of the moors with panoramic views. Now has its own restaurant, it's handy for walkers and visitors to Macron Stadium. The inn is some 200 years old and is named after a local blacksmith who allegedly spent more time in the pub than he did in his smithy across the road. This is a genuine free house which offers guest beers from small independent breweries. Dogs are welcome, there is a covered smoking area at the side of the pub.
