This popular two-roomed village pub which was formally part of the Hophouse Inns group has recently reverted back to a freehouse under management. A long standing entry in the Good Beer Guide, the pub has had a smart makeover. Conversation is king here and there is always a good eclectic mix of locals to chat to. Food is available all day apart from a Tuesday. The beer festival held annually which took place on the August bank holiday weekend appears to have been discontinued.
