This old stone-built coaching inn, with mock-Tudor first floor, is notable for the cosy lounge bar at the back, refitted in the 1950s. Local legend has it that the attractive wall panelling came from the SS Carpathia, the first ship to go to the aid of the Titanic. However, although the upper parts betray signs of re-use, the Carpathia was torpedoed in deep water off Ireland in 1918! The bar counter (with leatherette upholstery), bar back, two brick fireplaces and fixed seating are all from the refit. The dining room at the front was refurbished in 2004.

An old stone-built coaching inn with mock-Tudor first floor. It retains an intact, cosy lounge bar at the rear refitted, it seems, in the 1950s. Attractive panelling but beware the local story that says it came from the SS Carpathia, the first ship that went to the aid of the Titanic. The upper parts of the panelling do show signs of reuse but the Carpathia was torpedoed in deep water off Ireland in 1918! The bar counter (with leatherette upholstery), bar-back, two brick fireplaces and fixed seating all may date from the 1950s. The dining room at the front was refurbished in 2004. Outside gents' and ladies'.
