This prominent, historical multi-roomed pub dates from about 1540. Recently a new bistro restaurant has been added to the facilities which also includes the main bar, a narrow public bar and an enclosed conservatory. The patio garden is also very popular in good weather. The main bar includes a large fireplace, high beamed ceiling and hosts live musicevery weekend. The food is an eclectic mix of styles to suit most tastes. Outside is the listed "steelyard" - which is an impressive large artefact from the past and hence the pub's name. Disabled toilet.

Beer and cheese festival is run late July - early August.
