A late -17th-century inn last refitted in the 1950s and little changed since. A flagstone passageway runs from the front door to the rear. To the left, the main bar, which would have been two small rooms in the distant past, has a very large old stone fireplace with huge lintel. The bar counter was installed in the 1950s (the bar-back shelves look more recent) and other features include the dado panelling with bench seating attached, two curved high-backed settles, shutters on the windows and a characterfully ‘lumpy’ ceiling (can you spot the sheep?). On the right of the passage is a small dining room which would also once have been two very small rooms. Outside gents' and ladies' at the rear.
