This 17th century pub has three distinct rooms and a 19th century servery.
On high ground just on the edge of London, this feels much more like a country pub than a town pub. It has been a pub since the 17th century but there is now nothing one can see from that time. The core is just inside the front entrance – a service lobby with a delightful 19th-century servery with high-level screenwork. Along the right-hand side as you enter is a fixed bench and wall panelling with a shelf above. The ‘stone’ flooring was installed in a generally careful refit after a bus embedded itself in the front wall some years ago. On the right, up a couple of steps is a cosy snug with plain, square, panelling and a fixed bench. The large, left-hand room is entered from the service lobby and dates from the 1950s. The ‘barn’ on the right is a function room and is pre-World War II.
