An Elizabeathan thatched pub. With four well kept and very reasonably priced beers and an atmosphere that encourages conversation, this is well worth a visit (or two) and is popular with weekend walkers. A rear garden patio and a front garden on the river Kennet also provide space for outdoor drinking on sunny days.
In 1968, Dalham suffered flooding so severe that the level of the River Kennett rose as high as the pub's bar. The landlord had to be rescued from upstairs.
