An excellent community pub, convenient for the railway station. It has a reputation for good value Sunday lunches and the beer quality is top-notch. There's live music on Saturday evenings.

It was purchased from Greene King by pub regular Peter Garner, who renovated and re-opened it in March 2011.

Footnote

In 1830 the Duke of Wellington was Prime Minister when the the Beer Act was introduced to help create Beer Houses - a new lower tier of premises permitted to sell alcohol. Under the 1830 Act any householder who paid rates could apply, with a one-off payment of two guineas, to sell beer or cider in their home (usually the front parlour) and even brew on the premises. The permission did not extend to the sale of spirits or fortified wines.
