The Elephant and Castle was originally a private house (built about 1650) which was converted into a pub in 1715.

The pub still retains two separate bar areas and is popular with locals. Both bars have a wood-burner fitted and have exposed beams. The pub has wooden floors, and local photographs adorn the walls. There are three beers on hand pump and proper pub food. The pub holds occasional quiz nights. There's no food lunchtimes except Sunday. There are themed food evenings and a meat raffle every Friday. Sky sport TV can be watched in the main bar.

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.
