17th century house converted to a public house - the pub area has gradually evolved and expanded. The original core was no doubt the low ceilinged room with the old bar counter and the delightful little snug beyond it – note the screen to it and the impressive fireplace within. Another room at the front was probably pressed into service later and has a 1930s brick fireplace. All these areas have match-board wall-panelling and seem to have undergone a refit probably in the 1920s – for example the addition of the adzed beams to add to the antique air: with these go the external, mock Tudor remodelling bay on the right. Right of the old servery (modern bar-back) a further beamed snug with old fireplace, then a further couple of rooms which contain what is probably 1920s panelling and period fireplaces. Considerably extended to the rear in 2004 when Mitchells & Butlers removed a garden bar and added a new lounge bar and more seating areas to the rear right. However, thankfully, these do not impact hugely on the front six rooms.
