Statement of Interest

Noted in the OS Name Book as "...a large public house...having stabling and a small garden attached." Situated on a prominent corner site, in the centre of Coldingham village. Relatively early and essentially intact, there remain some interesting features - the steeply pitched roof and curved corner being particularly notable on the single storey block. Rutherfurd's notes a Mr Adam Pringle as publican here in 1866, when a horse and gig were also available to hire.
