About the Pub

Owned by St John’s College; proposed lease to Youngs seems to have fallen through. Often full of tourists who come here to sit where Tolkien drank - a writers group, The Inklings, which included Tolkien and C.S.Lewis amongst others met here for lunch in the 1930s and 40s until the lounge they used (the Rabbit Room) was 'improved' out of existence and they decamped across the road. There are two small front snugs, which could be as they would have been in 1684 when a beerhouse is first recorded, then a small bar which leads to a narrow room and a conservatory. Plans to extend the ground floor and create letting bedrooms above in this Grade ll listed building may at last have found favour with the authorities.

Historic Interest

Listed Grade ll. Forms group with 31 to 46 and 49 to 56.
