Former coaching inn in middle of village.
The building dates from the 18th century, with a 19th century façade.
Years of neglect saw the both kitchen and the letting rooms fall below standard. In the pub's last two years a succession of tenants came and went. No purchasers came forward, so the doors closed for the last time in December 2009.
Now residential and called Thomas Churchyard House.
