About the Pub

A 17th-century rural gem with a lounge/dining space, a small snug hidden behind the bar and a tap room/locals' area with a grandfather clock, beamed ceiling and welcoming log fire. The extensive garden has children's play equipment, and a permanent marquee, making the pub popular all year. The internal fittings around the bar are original, and photos of locals adorn the walls. Home-cooked English food is served all day from lunchtime into the evenings. The pub is reputedly haunted. Occasional beer festivals and live music feature. Guest ales from Lincoln Green and other breweries.
