A single bar with seating leads to a restaurant. Outside there is a large garden and patio area. Accommodation is available in rooms on a B&B basis and touring caravans can also be accommodated on-site. At one time, it was said that the bells of five churches could be heard from its location.

The pub is on the parish boundary and is sometimes said to be located in Wrentham, however since we now have definitive boundary data from the Ordnance Survey, we can see that it's just inside South Cove.

The licensing magistrates were evidently a bit confused about the pub in 1879 - they licensed it as the Eight Bells!
