A hidden away three-roomed village pub, still with fittings from the 1930s when an extension was added to a much older pub. The front door leads to a tiny snug called McGill’s Bar (named in honour of customer Dave Curtis, who resembled McGill, the man in a suitcase) which has an old, at least 1930s, counter painted cream. Take a close look at the door between the bars and you can see it was raised around 9 inches in height (in 2003) to stop customers banging their heads! Through a doorway to the left of McGill’s bar is the small public bar. This has a counter of similar vintage, also painted cream, but the fireplace and fixed seating look more 1960s, The bar-back was replaced in the 1980s. To the right is the lounge, once two small rooms, which has an interesting carved counter added in the 1970s, possibly to replace a hatch. The fixed seating and distinctive fireplace look 1960s. Both Gents' and Ladies' have a 1930's panel in the door and inter-war tiles on the walls, as does the porch.
