A comfortable Free House & restaurant with integral locally sourced delicatessen shop. The large outdoor seating area is popular with walkers & cyclists in the summer.

There's a toilet accessible to disabled customers.

The name, which as far as we can ascertain is unique, apparently comes from an Elizabethan filled pancake. To make a Bacon Froize Take eight Eggs well beaten, & a little Cream, & a little Flour, & beat them well together to be like other Batter, then fry very thin slices of Bacon, & pour some of this over, then fry it, & turn the other side, & pour more upon that, so fry it & serve it to the Table.
