See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Classic 1930s building opposite the ancient town hall in England's smallest town and overlooking the River Stour. The large bar has a lovely open fireplace, a long bar and bar stools, and there is a separate oak-panelled dining room. It became a gastropub when it changed hands in January 2018, and after only 9 months, it has been awarded one Michelin star. But it is still a pub, and the beers are reasonably priced. More prestigious awards are being collected. There is a pleasant riverside garden. The Stour Valley Walk is nearby, and boat trips on the river leave from outside the pub.
