old OS map

Set close to a disused tower mill, with fine views over open countryside. Various old tools decorate the main lounge/dining area. The public bar is a smaller separate room.

The pub had reopened after lockdown, but has had to close again. A note on the door (May 2021) says "Dear customers. After taking Fiona's heart condition into account we have not made plans to reopen the business yet".

The sign was still in situ when the pub was visited in June 2023, however changes to the premises suggest perhaps it may not reopen?

A former Greene King pub, now free.

The crown is a simple sign to show loyalty to the reigning monarch and apart from the commonwealth era (1648-60) has been a pub sign for over 600 years.
