A characterful five roomed pub close to the historic Quay and a large public car-park. Also offers accommodation (4 en-suite letting rooms) and an orchard, large public car-park and camping during summer (after May). Lots of character within this impressive old building which has undergone a significant but tasteful refurbishment.
Some steps initially lead down from the street level into the main bar. This links to small snug bar located behind the huge fireplace.
Alternatively visitors may head to any one of the three eating areas. Two are located towards the front of the building and are divided by another pair of massive fireplaces. The third is smaller and decorated with navigational charts and located behind the bar counter.
The building probably dates back to the 17th century.
