Overview | Gallery | Historical info | Public transport | Map

A beamed 15th century pub close to the popular roadside golf course. The pub was renamed Saracens in early 2010. When visited in May 2019 it was undergoing renovation and appears to be getting the old name back.

Most of the building dates from the 18th century but some parts are earlier.
