Found empty and evidently undergoing renovation work when visited in May 2020. However, nothing further appeared to have been done in August 2020 and there's no indication of either reopening or of the pub being on the market, so we have to wonder if the pub has any future.

This two bar pub is set in a pretty village which will be forever linked with the fictional village of Akenfield. The modernised pub interiors offer a comfortable lounge & dining area in one room & a livelier but simply furnished public bar with tiled floor, real fire & piano.

Acoustic music night the first Saturday of each month. Locally sourced food with themed food evening specials boards with gluten free & vegetarian options.

There is a bus only twice a day through the village.

Only open for bookings on Sunday (closed in the evening)
