Attractive two bar pub with splendid views of the Stour estuary which is popular with local ramblers.
Closed since 2009, this pub was purchased in November 2010 and will supposedly re-open when renovation work has been completed, with the addition of a café and art gallery.
Pub is now much improved but still not trading in late 2013.
There are many exposed beams and woodwork in both bars especially the split level lounge/restaurant area which also has low ceilings and leads into the separate conservatory area. Some interesting local pictures can also be seen.
Worth seeking out.
