Bramford Rd, IP8 3DA

The pub has been known for food for many years and a large restaurant area dominates the interior. The name derives from a local legend about a hermit who lived in nearby woods when the pub was built early in the 16th century.

The pub closed suddenly on January 15th 2020. At present its future is uncertain.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
