About the Pub

Dating from the 15th century, this is a rambling and somewhat food-orientated 2-bar thatched country pub on split levels, with lots of cosy nooks and a separate restaurant area. Carpeted throughout, the main bar area usually enjoys a lively mix of local drinkers and diners, while the smaller bar to the rear is mainly used by locals enjoying a quieter beer and a chat; the background music is usually subdued. Several inglenooks and snugs help give the pub a cosy atmosphere. The d├ęcor has a nautical flavour, with plenty of bric-a-brac (miniatures, brasses, mugs and a large collection of bottle openers) and pictures of sailing ships mixed in with old local scenes. A large model ship and a fish tank are also fixtures. Food is available daily, with 'light bites' (coffees, cream teas etc.) also offered 12:00-18:00 in summer. Note the punchbowl and ladle picked out in the thatch. Many more buses leave from Playing Place, 1100 metres away.
