About the Pub

The pub is reputedly the 4th oldest in the country and sits near the Parish Church on the historic Churchgate, site of a famous Civil War execution . It is often referred to as the Cider 'Ouse. The pub retains some traditional features such as wooden beams, leaded windows and stone floors, though there have been modifications to the layout in recent times. Nevertheless, the pub does retain a cosy snug and a separate room, often used for jamming and open mic nights. On weekend evenings there is usually a local band playing and the pub can be very busy. On the back wall is a painted mural of the much-missed former landlord John Jewitt. Outside is a small enclosed yard which doubles up as a smoking area. Beers are from the more adventurous side of the Enterprise Inns list supplemented by the ever-popular local brewery Bank Top. Grade II listed building http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/en-475971-old-man-and-scythe-public-house- and http://list.english-heritage.org.uk/resultsingle.aspx?uid=1387975
