A comfortable Free House and restaurant with integral locally sourced delicatessen shop. The building was converted into a pub in 1975. The large outdoor seating area is popular with walkers and cyclists in the summer. Disabled toilet. Not open on Mon, Tue or Wed. Disabled toilet.
The name, which as far as we can ascertain is unique, apparently comes from an Elizabethan filled pancake.
To make a Bacon Froize: take eight Eggs well beaten, and a little Cream, and a little Flour, and beat them well together to be like other Batter, then fry very thin slices of Bacon, and pour some of this over, then fry it, and turn the other side, and pour more upon that, so fry it and serve it to the Table.
