This was a friendly two room traditional pub set in six acres of grounds.
Converted into a cycle shop and café in 2014, having suffered a serious fire a couple of years earlier from which the business never recovered.

The Metcalfe family once lived locally and seems to be significant property owners from about 1811 to 1888.
