Originally a house (built circa 1650) which was converted into a pub in 1715. Today it still retains two separate bar areas and remains popular with locals.

In September 2014, it was bought by a London couple, Ian & Sandra, who have relocated here, renovated the pub and reopened it in late October.

Now offering four beers on hand pump.

Note

An elephant & castle has appeared in the crest of the Cutlers Company since 1622. Ivory was then used to create knife handles. Some claim that the name derives from "Infanta of Castile" a reference to Eleanor of Castile, wife of Edward I.
