About the Pub

It is commonly supposed that the name 'Tippling Philosopher' may be apportioned to Robert Boyle, of Boyle's Law fame, who held court in the alehouse.The name was changed to the Kings' Head to celebrate the visit of George III in 1804, even though the inn was still called "The Tipplers" in some circles. Judge Jefferys was known to have used the dining room on several occasions. In 1927 the modern skittle alley and function room were built.

The original name was put back into place in July 1998 and the pub continues to serve the local community.
