Please mind your head upon entering this delightful, friendly but small rural, thatched pub with very low beams in the main bar. In fact the traditionally tiled floor is now much lower (by about a foot) than it once was and is now below ground-level. A more spacious public bar can be noisier and also leads to a games room with pool table and darts. There is always an interesting selection of ales available and a garden to rear of pub offers a nice place to relax on sunny days. Bus stop is on main road.
The building dates from some time in the 17th or 18th centuries.
