About the Pub

Long established popular village pub, located at the centre of this historic village, opposite the church.

Two front entrances directly access the simple public bar and large, comfortable lounge / dining room. The latter comprises several linked rooms and secluded corners, and has retained low-beamed ceilings, wood panelling and an inglenook. Sadly, two Bass lanterns illuminating the front doors 'disappeared' during a 2014 refurbishment, but another one remains over an annexe entrance at the rear. There is a small landscaped patio garden to the rear, adjoining the car park.

Simple home-cooked food, with regularly changing menu on blackboard, plus Sunday roasts.

Historic Interest

Former 17th-century coaching inn (parts of building date back to 1664) with some 19th-, 20th- and 21st-century additions. The old stables and brew-house still stand, now constituting the annexe to the rear.
