Traditional thatched pub which dates from the 18th century. Now free of tie and offering a changing selection of beers

Has two bars and a large garden including covered patio.

There are a number of coins nailed to the underside of the beams in the pub; it was a local custom during the Great War for departing soldiers to nail one up, to be retrieved when they returned. Sadly, many didn't.
