About the Pub

Reputedly the third oldest building in the town, it dates from around 1430 and has a wealth of massive timber beams, sloping floors, curious nooks and crannies on two storeys. It was originally a farmhouse within the estate of the Archbishop's palace. There is a heated and covered courtyard area.
