A plain, early 19th-century building which is still part of a working farm. It’s been in the same family hands since 1931. There is a simple public bar with old fittings, including a shuttered counter with a glazed screen (though the sashes are now raised permanently). In recent years the staircase was removed and the bar expanded on the right-hand side where the domino table now stands. The small right-hand room has always been even plainer in comparison. The present owner has cut a gap in the rear wall to create a walkway to the servery. Outside toilets. Beer is sometimes dispensed by means of a cask pump, a very rare arrangement nowadays. Closed Mon, opens 7.45 Tue-Sat, 4 Sun
A plain early 19th-century building having with a little-altered public bar with fittings from c.1900. It has been in the same family ownership since 1931 and is attached to a working farm. Note the pub name is painted on the right-hand side wall in the old fashioned way. The characterful public bar on the left has a concrete screed floor and a rare shuttered bar counter of three sections still intact with the lower sashes raised permanently. It also retains old bar-back shelving, an old stone fireplace and two sections of old fixed seating. In recent years the staircase to the first floor was removed and the bar expanded on the right hand side where the domino table now stands.
The small right-hand room has always been very plain by comparison and barely used. The present owner has cut a gap into the rear wall to create a walkway to the side of the servery where there is a fourth section of screen with a lower section creating service via a hatch. This means customers can get served in this room without having to visit the public bar and along with the addition of a radiator has meant the room is now regularly used by customers and as a meeting room - all helping to keep a traditional pub visible. Outside toilets. Closed Mon to Sat lunchtimes. Open 7.45 to close; Sun 4 to close.
