A historic pub interior of regional importance
Listed Status: IIVillage Lane
A seventeenth-century timber-framed building, re-fronted in the nineteenth and faced with whitewashed brick. The left-hand door leads to a tiny lobby and a small, unspoilt public bar with a flagstone floor, inglenook fireplace, and venerable bare benches attached to the panelled walls. The counter may date from 1930s. The servery is substantial and here casks are mounted on a brick thrawl and on some wooden stillages. From the lobby the door ahead leads to the lounge which has a counter again (possibly) from the 1930s and an old panelled dado. The lounge has been expanded to the right thus doubling its size. Outside toilets.
17th century, re-fronted 19th century timber-framed, white-washed brick building. Beyond the left hand door is a tiny lobby and the left hand door leads to a splendid unspoilt small public bar with a flagstone floor, inglenook with a modern brick fireplace in it, ancient bare benches attached to the old panelled walls, an old basic bench, two long oblong tables, and a baffle by the door. The bar counter looks to be from the 1930s, you can sit within the fireplace on the right hand side; and the left hand wall has full height panelling.
The pub has a large servery that doubles as a cellar with casks of beer on a brick thrawl on the left side and on some wooden stillages. There is some old bar back shelving within the servery and also more modern ones above the stillages casks. Also ciders from poly-casks.
From the left hand lobby the door ahead leads to the lounge which has another counter from the 1930s (or 1950s?) and some tongue and groove dado that looks old., an open rafter ceiling, beams and some upright timbers; also two modern brick fireplaces, one with a log fire. The lounge has been expanded to the right doubling its size. The right hand front door leads to the toilets i.e. you have to go outside to visit them – also from the right hand bar via a rear door.
