A traditional two bar pub with beams and tiled floors. With an outdoor seating area and stables still in evidence to rear.

The regular Real Ales are supplemented by ever-changing guest ales. There is also a selection of over 180 different gins now available. They expect to appear in the Guinness Book of Records soon.

The building dates from the 16th century, though there's evidence of a pub on this site as long ago as the 12th century.
