About the Pub

This old coaching inn is slowly being restored to its former glories. The building dates back to the 18th century; the 'Tudor' half timbering and other features date back only to the 1920s but can now be cherished as fine examples of 'brewers' tudor'. The Tudor Bar, in particular is worth a visit, and is a calm oasis from the hustle and bustle of Sadler Gate. It once had the atmosphere of a gentlemans' club where the chaps could sit in easy chairs and converse without (shame to say) any women present, except the barmaid. The room has been faithfully preserved (see the picture on the wall), but the crusty old chaps have gone and been replaced by modern women (and men are allowed as well).

Covid info: Details taken on entry. Card payments only. Table service preferred.
