A single, split level single bar with an interesting collection of bric-a-brack. A large outside patio is partly covered and sometimes used for live music. Inside, the pub is dominated by TV screens showing sport.

It can be busy at weekends.

The building is thought to date from the 17th century, though it was re-fronted in the 19th. It's said that the cellar contains a bricked-up entrance to a maze of tunnels.

Footnote

A halberd is a combination of spear and axe with a shaft about 2m long. Halberdiers were body guards to Tudor monarchs and they are still used ceremonially by Yeoman of the Guard.
