About the Pub

Large, comfortable and welcoming Victorian locals pub fronting the main road, with a small public bar (dominated by a pool table) and a larger lounge, plus a large dining/function room to the rear which can cater for up to 40 diners.

Fairly standard pub food, including snacks, pizzas and children’s meals, but carvery only on Sunday. Some special deals: 2 for £10 (not Sunday); curry & pint £5 Friday; burger & pint £5 Saturday.

The crown bowling green at the side, with its associated pavilion, is owned by NewRiver Retail but leased separately to Stapenhill Bowls Club.

Historic Interest

Built in 1858 and originally a Salt’s pub until that brewery was taken over by Bass in 1927; during Edwardian times it reputedly housed a Burton Corporation hose-reel station. It remained a Bass pub until at least 1994; recorded as owned by Punch Taverns in 2005 (year of purchase not known), but bought by NewRiver in 2015.
