The precise status of this pub is currently uncertain, though it seems unllikely ever to reopen. When visited in August 2015, it looked as if it might have been converted into residential use (it was certainly occupied), but as some signage is still up, it's difficult to work out if it's trading as a pub or not. If you have any information, please contact Tony.
An attractive two bar pub with splendid views of the Stour estuary which was popular with local ramblers.
There were many exposed beams and woodwork in both bars especially the split level lounge/restaurant area which also had low ceilings and led into the separate conservatory area. Some interesting local pictures could also be seen.
Closed since 2009, this pub was purchased in November 2010 and was allegedly re-opening when renovation work was completed, with the addition of a café and art gallery. There have been rumours of work going on in the middle of 2016, but there was no obvious sign of this when it was visited at the end of October. The situation was still the same early in 2019.
