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

The earliest mention of this classic flint built pub was in 1733. What kind of trade the inn did in its infancy is hard to fathom as it nestled in comparative seclusion. This changed in the 19th century when it got a reputation as an excursion pub, when horse brake parties sought out the pub's tea rooms. The pub has kept its rustic quality despite considerable alterations over the years. The Whitbread Beefeater restaurant and bar was added in 1975 with it being further extended in the mid 80s. Sold to Greene King, who have turned it into a Hungry Horse outlet.
