About the Pub

A one room pub with several distinct areas, and a cosy & welcoming feel which serves the usual pub food and excellent Scotch eggs. There are a patio and seating area outside. The pub is situated in the old Market Place and first traded as an Inn in 1830. It closed in about 1908 and became a Co-op store, then a private residence. It was restored and converted back into a pub in 1981, rapidly becoming part of the local scene. Today it is a popular and welcoming pub in the village. Level access throughout the pub but no dedicated accessible toilet.

Historic Interest

In 1827 Edward Littleton gave his tenant, William Southern, permission to turn his house into an inn, the conversion cost £15. The premises had a beerhouse license in the 19th century, which was not available until 1830. William was a maltster as well as a bricklayer in 1828, he possibly built the brewhouse. In 1883 the property was offered for sale as a freehold beerhouse, in the occupation of Mr C P Russell. It was described as consisting of a taproom, smokeroom, parlour, three bedrooms, pantry, with the maltroom over, large brewhouse, good cellaring, with stables, cartshed, piggeries, coalhouse, hardwater well and pump, and large garden. C P Russell is still shown at the pub in a directory of 1884 but in the 1885 edition of the same directory he is shown as a grocer.
