About the Pub

When the Sixpenny Brewery moved out of the village to larger premises elsewhere the brewery tap also closed. A group of locals worked hard to establish a suitable outlet to fill the void and opted for the Sports Pavilion and have created a bar and cellar. It provides a focus for village sports and social events. A wide range of local micro breweries are on offer. Opening times extended when local events occur.
