This 15th-century building was an inn from the late 16th-century and parts of its centuries old fittings remain. The big attraction is the Globe Room at the rear in a 1637 extension, a fully panelled room dating from 17th-century with a stone fireplace. The panelling is said to have been sold before the First World War but, after storage in London, was returned in 1964. Sadly the decorative plasterwork ceiling was also removed but plaster casts of it are in the Victoria and Albert Museum. The front parts used to be two small rooms either side of a corridor but were combined into a single space in 1987. A 17th-century fire surround, beamed ceiling and some old panelling remain.
