Overview | Gallery | Historical info | Public transport | Map

A traditional two bar pub with beams and tiled floors. There's an outdoor seating area with stables still in evidence to the rear.

The well-kept Real Ales are supplemented by a selection of over 270 different gins available. The range of gins has resulted in an entry in the Guinness Book of Records.

Two open mic evenings every month on the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays plus a DJ every Saturday evening and live music (see the pub's website). There's a wood fired pizza oven in the garden.

The building dates from the 16th century, though there's evidence of a pub on this site as long ago as the 12th century.
