This 17th century pub is well worth a visit to see the wonderful snug created by two large curved settles around a large old brick fireplace, all of which could be as much as 200 years old. The settles are held in place by iron stays attached to the beamed ceiling. An uneven brick floor passageway runs from the front door and to the left is a room with a herringbone brick floor. Situated beyond the snug, the modern bar fittings include a bar-back with linen-fold panelling from the Dorchester in London; this was installed in a refit in the 1990s and involved moving the bar counter through 90 degrees. The bar has since been moved again following flooding in Winter 2013. The farm attached to the pub has won many awards for its pigs and sheep.

The pub has a farm attached with pigs and sheep that have won many awards as demonstrated by the number of rosettes displayed on the beams.
