A popular two roomed pub which offers good food. Large beer garden and beer festival on Whitsun bank holiday weekend.

Underwent a stylish and contemporary refurbishment early in the 2010s. Passionate about fresh ingredients and source produce locally wherever possible, including an exciting range of wines from Giffords Hall Vineyards in Hartest.

Also have a rear courtyard dining area beautiful lawns, see the pub website for pictures and up to date menus.

Watch out for "Kentwellians" during the Tudor recreations at Kentwell Hall who can often be found in the back bar on summer evenings.
