INTERIOR: 2-leaf screen doors with etched glass panels lead to small public bar with original semicircular counter and back gantry; boarded timber walls and ceiling; fireplace with large lintel dated 1691 (see Notes) and mirror. Small urinal to rear of bar (see Notes).
This small village pub was rebuilt in 1907. The front elevation makes a good focal point at the end of the High Street, and the plaque over the door reads; "Established 1691, rebuilt by John Robb <> 1907". The interesting interior retains some original fittings, including the 1691 fireplace lintel (formerly over the main door) and the bar is unaltered. The small urinal, situated immediately behind the bar has a small hatch and is thought to have originally been a jug bar.
