High St, CO10 8LN
grid reference TL 782 515
opened 16th century
Reopened in 2023 as the base for the Old Goat Brewery.
A notice on the pub's website, which we noticed in February 2020, states that the pub has closed. This has since been confirmed by a site visit.
In July 2022, news arrived that the pub (and brewery) were to be reopened. Work is ongoing and we look forward to the day the pub reopens with its own beers.
