See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Originally an old Coaching Inn, circa 1700s, the bar area is situated where the old pub used to be and retains the low beam style of decor, some of which may be original. The dark wood bar itself is both ornate and impressive. The bar is open to the general public at all times and all meals (breakfast on ly before noon) may be ordered without having to be a resident in the Premier Inn. Three hand-pumps are fitted and depending on demand all three may be in operation. Low lighting and background music dominate the several ‘nooks and crannies’ around the bar, which contain both regular and high level tables and chairs. Also situated in this area are two small televisions (Freeview only), three fruit machines and the toilets for the whole establishment.
