Characterful 15th cent. beamed pub where 'Ring the Bull' can still be played.
Specialised in South African food, with many exotic meats on the menu.
Found closed, with the freehold for sale when visited in June 2013. From the state of the building and grounds, it appears to have been abandoned some time ago.
Update: we're told the pub closed towards the end of 2012.

NOTE: A messuage equates to a dwelling-house and may include outbuildings, orchard, curtilage or court-yard and garden - this may have been an earlier structure to the current property.
