The pub is at the far-western edge of the village, almost in Little Finborough. It was historically listed as being in Upper town, ie Combs.
The pub is run by a community-interest company on behalf of the village.
The pub's name shows it to have been a haunt of Whigs during the 17th century, as punch was their preferred drink. Their rival Tories preferred old-fashioned wines.
