About the Pub

This self-proclaimed beerhouse which first opened in 1717 is situated just off the Ludlow bypass. Definitely not the most pristine of pub interiors, indeed the pub's own website used to include a very apt quote calling it the “finest dysfunctional pub so far”. However to be fair it has been a lot tidier in recent times (newcomers may be bemused as to what state it used to be in), yet still retains the relaxed atmosphere generated by the pub's characterful hosts.

There are two rooms, the bar containing the games facilities, whilst the lounge is decked out with musical instruments and possibly other temporarily homeless items. Beermats & photos adorn the walls & ceiling - spot Time Team members who enjoyed evenings there when in the area. The collection of artefacts also spills out into the yard, for example there are some old Ludlow pub signs in evidence. Beer festivals are held twice a year. Enjoyed a 12 year spell in the Good Beer Guide (2001-2012).
