Closed at present for refurbishment. According to the chap who was working there (Nov 2013) it could take up to 15 months due to the listed nature of the building. However, when visited in September 2014, there was no sign of any work being ongoing and the building had a somewhat abandoned look about it.
A cosy two room timber framed pub with conservatory set in extensive gardens. The drinking area near bar includes a large fireplace.
The building dates from the 17th century; the brickwork dates from the 19th century.
Three beers on hand-pump and food is also available. Monday is Fish & Chip Night - great value - Eat in or takeaway!
Regular quiz nights and occasional live music (in adjacent barn) with car boot sales and summer vehicle rallys held in large car park & garden.
