The pub is 400 years old & has been recently decorated to a high standard. Walkers & ramblers welcome.

This pub is now open. Owners are brewing all their own beer. Huge amount of restoration done inside the building. Just opening Friday nights at the moment but expanding soon.

A former Greene King pub.

The on-site Munson's Brewery beers are all served from keykeg, which is Real Ale but without the air coming into contact with it, which means it lasts longer. Our photographer has tried some and found them very tasty.

The Chequers sign is an ancient sign probably brought to England by the Romans. Later the sign became associated with a money table e.g. an exchequer or type of chessboard. Some pubs displayed the sign to indicate that they would change money or acted as bankers in some way.
