Also popularly known as the "Low House" this timeless, multi-roomed and thatched building is a classic pub which is always worth a visit. The main room features listed high back settles set around a small fireplace, whilst the beer is served on gravity direct from a small tap room to rear. A separate dining room offers an interesting menu of locally sourced food and including a Sunday roast but NOT on Sunday evening. An enclosed garden and patio to the rear is also available. Accommodation is available in an outside building.

The pub can be difficult to find - just walk through churchyard and exit via lower street access, or use our navigation feature.

The building dates from the 16th century, with an 18th century extension.
