Currently closed - may reopen?

opened about 1872

Mill Ln, IP14 3DW

grid reference TL 996 577

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 says ""Due to the decline in Fiona's health we are currently Closed".

We wish Fiona a quick recovery.

A former Greene King pub, now free.

The Crown is shown on this old OS map from about 1903 (interactive map)

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.
