We received news late in June 2019 that this pub had closed. We hope not for too long and will keep an eye on developments.
A good village local. There's a separate restaurant alongside a comfortable bar.
The annual race of the bogmen is held locally on Easter Mondays.
Now a freehouse, with all Greene King branding removed when visited in May 2015.
The building dates from the late 16th or early 17th century, with 19th century alterations. It was originally a group of four cottages, but was converted into a pub about 1866 to replace the White Horse, which stood over the road.
There are plans to set up a farm shop and post office at the pub.
