About the Pub

Pub Re-opened 19th July 2021 under the new management of Shaun & Lisa. Pub dates from 1772. The Luddites met here in 1812 to plan the attack on Rawfolds Mill. Large U-shaped lounge with stained glass windows. Rescued from pubco abandonment in 2010, this well-loved historic pub features log fires and stained-glass windows. A room upstairs was used for secret meetings of Luddites as they planned their attacks on local mills 200 years ago. Fine views from the garden which provides plenty of seating. Popular taproom provides TV, pool and traditional pub games. Two regular Ales plus changing Ales from renowned local breweries available.
