An Inn has existed on the site since 1352. The current building was erected between 1550 and 1565. Charles II, William Shenstone and John Byng have all stayed here and it was once run by the actor Michael Elphick. The main bar is a cosy, attractive area with many exposed original beams and a real fire. Good quality home cooked food is served in here to compliment the excellently kept ales. There is a carved daisy wheel in a beam of a cottage attached to the pub, a common 16th & 17th century symbol to ward off witches and evil, usually carved by a child. Locals claim to have seen a ghostly child roaming the area. The rear part is now a Stone Aged Steakhouse restaurant, serving food 6-9 pm Mon-Sat. There is a separate function room that can be hired out
