Believed to be older than 1771, the pub has a traditional, small front room with an open fire and very small sidde lounge with old fashioned grate fire. The back lounge (with a roaring fire to be aware of) extends into a bistro style lounge and an upstairs restaurant with a fine vaulted, tongue in groove ceiling. The new owners have a right to be proud of the fine cask ales sold to compliment superb food and a great selection of teas and coffees. Annual well attended beer festivals. Friendly staff. Now doing live music of the classical type. Still running the Beerfest in August.
