About the Pub

Threatened with the loss of the pub when the previous licensee left a couple of years ago, the locals had the pub designated an Asset of Community Value (ACV) and it is at the heart of village life. The main building of the pub was originally three 16th Century cottages before being joined together and converted. The cosy interior features exposed stonework and pleasant low lighting. Home-cooked food from locally sourced ingredients is served; there are themed food nights and special menus to accompany events such as the regular quiz. The letting rooms and large garden are across the road which, so to speak, runs through the pub. The current owners took over in 2016 and breathed new life into the venture.
