About the Pub

Large and comfortable Victorian hotel bar in the heart of Old Town. It was refurbished in 2018 and has a very smart interior. During the evenings and weekends the bar can become very busy and live sports are often shown. There is a separate restaurant and a large function room upstairs. There are five handpumps dedicated to Arkell's beers, with a further three for cider and perry - mostly Weston's and Thatcher’s. There is live music on Sunday evenings.

There is a public car park at the rear, but charges apply.

Historic Interest

The original building opened c1835 and was also a bakery with a windmill in the back garden. In 1867 owner John Godwin borrowed £1000 and had rebuilt the pub by 1870. Arkell's bought it in 1885.
