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".

We wish Fiona a quick recovery.

A former Greene King pub, now free.

Footnote

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.
