A characterful and spacious two room pub with a gravity stillage.
The building dates from the late 15th century, though it was partly rebuilt and extended about 1600.
The spaniel on the sign (the sharp-eyed will have spotted that it's not a greyhound) is called Elvis and is owned by the pub's proprietor, Chris Burnard.
Planning permission has been granted for an on-site microbrewery.
