About the Pub

Although remotely situated, high quality, well kept ales and superb food make this a thriving pub. Built in 1593, burnt down and rebuilt in 1711, the oldest part today is the small bar housing an inglenook fireplace. The lounge features an intriguing central double sided log fire. Six acres of grounds include a children's play area, aviary and a large beer garden which gets busy in the summer evenings. Discount on ales available to CAMRA members. Current favourite beers at the pub which appear regularly include Bathams Bitter, Enville Ale, Ludlow Gold, Herefordshire Pale Ale and Castle Rock Harvest Pale Ale. Open all day on Bank Holidays 12pm-11pm (except Christmas Day).
