Now established as a Free House is this lovely restored mediaeval building in the centre of town. Regularly serving ales from casks on the counter - featuring Adnams as a regular with frequently changing guest ales including those from local micro breweries.

There are now three drinking areas - the Lounge Bar with the counter and a mediaeval brick fireplace, a snug (behind the fireplace) and the bright and sunny Cross Street Bar, where familes are particularly welcome, and it is set with dining tables and an open fire.

All home-made pub food and light lunches, the food prepared by landlady Pamela Roper. She specialises in Spanish Tapas inspired by her years in Tenerife, but is also popular for standard pub grub and all home made pizzas. There's a speciality curry night on the first Wednesday of every month.

As the last remaining pub in town, it is not surprisingly that it can be very busy at lunchtimes with food and with a younger clientele during evenings (especially at weekend). There is also a newly planted beer garden with lots of seating. Dogs and children welcome. Car parking available nearby.
