This remote free house had much character and the conservatory gave a fine view of the garden. Good Food was served.
The pub has not traded since 2013 and has of late been used as a trinket shop. There are fears locally that it may be converted to residential use and it has been marketed as such. There is a local campaign to buy the pub for the community and it was made an Asset of Community Value, much to the annoyance of the current owners who wanted to sell it as a house. When seen in June 2018, it appeared that conversion was underway, so it seems the ACV status has come to nothing.
The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
