About the Pub

This former coaching inn fronts directly on to the A515, with only a narrow path between. Now a family-owned free-house (since 2014), subsequent refurbishment has retained the low-beamed ceilings and hence the cosy atmosphere.

The public bar is divided by a brick fireplace with a wood-burning stove, and is linked through an arch to the Highwayman's Restaurant. The latter has its own bar counter and is, in turn, linked to a bright and airy conservatory, which is also used for dining.

Disabled access is possible although there are no dedicated disabled toilet facilities.

The owners also operate Staffordshire Traditional Meats, based near Uttoxeter, and have converted the outbuilding by car park into a popular farm shop (opened November 2015).

Historic Interest

Around 200 years old and originally a coaching inn. Recorded as an Ansells / Ind Coope pub up to April 1991, but bought by Pubmaster between then and April 1992. Still appears to have been a Pubmaster pub in February 1994, but then noted as owned (or leased?) by Wibberley Inns (a local company founded in 2000; in liquidation 2008-10) in December 2004 (date of sale not known). Bought by Punch Taverns circa May 2005; sold to current owners February 2014.
