About the Pub

A lively locals pub featuring a large public bar (with large screen projector TV), with a pool room behind. There is a rarely used but comfortable and quieter lounge. (A function/meeting room upstairs, with its own bar counter, hasn't been used for a few years!)

Outdoor drinking on patio and lawn at rear (access through pool room), and on hard standing, bordered by flower troughs, at front.

Karaoke and/or disco Saturday evening.

Local Pigeon Club meets here.

Historic Interest

Probably built in the early 1800s; first mentioned in a trade directory in 1827. Originally called the Lord Nelson (date of name change not known), the pub may have been privately owned until sold to the local Brunt & Bucknall Brewery in 1861. Brunt & Bucknall were taken over by Salts Brewery (Burton) in 1919, who were in turn taken over in 1927 by Bass. The pub remained in Bass’s hands until the late 1990s, when sold to Avebury Taverns who were taken over by Punch in 2005.
