About the Pub

A charming pub with great stone walls and ancient timbers. It was once a coaching inn and encompassed its adjoining buildings that are still in use by other businesses today. It was used to quarter Parliamentary troops during the seige of Raglan Castle in 1646. Two large coal and wood burning fires - one fireplace with a stove in the lounge is believed to have been retrieved from nearby Raglan Castle - provide welcome warmth on cold days. There are model sailing ships in the recesses and window sill of the bar although it is thought the original pub name was the Sheep, a name that got lost in translation over the centuries; the sheep were penned outside on market days. A separate pool room with CD box is sectioned off, as is the pleasant dining room off the lounge that looks out onto the rear garden. Entry is by way of a cobbled forecourt and drinking patio with an old disused water pump. A charity quiz is held on the first Friday of the month and there are also open mic nights held monthly. Parking is available nearby.
