About the Pub

A popular free-house at the heart of an attractive hamlet at the southern tip of the county. It is leased from the Lullington Estate, the seat of the Colvile family until the early 1900s.

Inside, the public bar comprises an adjoining hallway and snug, each featuring high-backed settles with wood panelling. The bar and a comfortable lounge are situated on opposite sides of a central serving area. A second lounge / function room overlooks the beer garden and lawn (a former bowling green).

Food is limited to filled cobs, although occasional themed food evenings are held, eg. a 'wood-fired pizza night'. A wide range of gins are available (37 at the last count!).

A quiz team, the Colvile Arms Golf Society, a pub cricket team, and the village cricket team, are based here. A marquee is available in summer to host wedding receptions and other events.

Historic Interest

Parts may date back to 18th-century; originally believed to be 3 cottages, the building appears on an 1824 survey, and the pub certainly existed in 1857. Once run by local blacksmith and called The Three Horseshoes. Later named after the local family who owned the estate (bought from the Gresleys in 1837); the last member, Sir Henry Colvile left (for South Africa?) in the early 1900s and the estate broken up and sold in 1912.
